BECAUSE Christianity isn’t black and white . . .
At last week’s national Newspaper Awards, the Church Times won another prestigious prize. Last year it was judged Niche Newspaper of the Year. This year, in the same category, it won the award for Best Use of Colour. It was also shortlisted once again for Niche Newspaper of the Year.
The judges’ citation mentioned “an intriguing mixture of powerful covers contrasting with sophisticated and sparing use of colour inside”.
Other winners at last week’s ceremony were The Daily Telegraph, which was honoured as Best National Newspaper of the Year for its exposure of the MPs’ expenses scandal. Its editor, William Lewis, was judged Personality of the Year. The Sunday Times received the award for Best Weekend Newspaper; the Eastern Daily Press for Best Regional Newspaper; and The Cumberland News for Weekly Newspaper. The Financial Times won the award for Newspaper Design of the Year, and The Guardian won Best Use of Colour among the dailies.
The editor would like to thank the printers of the Church Times, Mortons of Horncastle, for the consistently high quality of work they produce each week. Mortons were justly shortlisted for the Printer of the Year award.
