Why awards matter and what they mean for your business

Here at Reach we're no stranger to winning awards. Last month at the O2 Media Awards for the North West we won a total of nine awards, including five for the Liverpool Echo which was named Daily Newspaper of the Year. The Echo's round-the-clock newsroom also took home the Online Media award.

This was followed by further success at the Midlands Media Awards where Birmingham Mail / BirminghamLive won Team of the Year and Story of the Year, while the Staffordshire Newsletter was named Weekly Newspaper of the Year.

The 2019 trophy cabinet is overflowing and, yes, we have our acceptance speeches down to a fine art, but that doesn’t mean we take awards for granted. This industry recognition is incredibly important to us as it demonstrates our commitment to serving and championing local communities – as we have for hundreds of years. Whether rewarded or not, our editorial teams will continue to hold authorities to account, to campaign for change, to make a difference to the lives of local people.

Speaking at the O2 awards, O2’s director of corporate affairs Nicola Green underlined this point: “The awards showcase excellence in news, sport, entertainment, social and community media. This year’s entries once again highlight the impact the media has on our communities.”
