IRN Editor and Chair of Judges Dave Terris said: “The Awards continue to go from strength to strength because news teams recognise the importance of staying ahead of the game and delivering engaging and distinctive content. The judges have been very impressed with the quality of the entries which is testament to the commitment, ambition and editorial enterprise of teams across the country. I wish all the nominees the best of luck.”

IRN Managing Director Tim Molloy added: “There were over 250 entries across the 11 categories and whittling it down to 32 nominees has been a tough job for our judges. Thank you to everyone who entered and good luck to all the nominees – see you all on March 10th!”
