Awards success for your

THE Evening Times has always campaigned for Glasgow.

And last night this was recognised not once but twice at the prestigious Scottish Press Awards.

Our ground-breaking bid to transform communities across the city, Streets Ahead, spearheaded by Ann Fotheringham, was named Campaign of the Year.

And our bid to change the law in Scotland to allow presumed consent for organ donation, Opt For Life, led by reporter Caroline Wilson was runner up.

Evening Times editor Tony Carlin said: "To have our campaigning journalists recognised like this is a tremendous achievement and further strengthens the Evening Times' reputation as an unrivalled campaigner for the people of Glasgow.

"This is testament to the hard work and dedication of our team of talented journalists, in particular Ann Fotheringham and Caroline Wilson, and it shows that what we have done with Streets Ahead and Opt For Life has really struck a chord with our readers.

"Streets Ahead would not have achieved the tremendous success it has in the past year if it were not for the strong support we've received from our partners and the people of Glasgow.

"We are going to keep working on Opt For Life and hope it will change legislation and save the lives of people waiting for organ donations.

"The Evening Times is now looking forward to continuing our strong tradition of championing the causes that matter most to our readers across our city in the future, and to continuing to prove day in, day out, that nobody knows Glasgow better."

Colleagues on our sister papers also took prestigious awards, including from the Herald, Steven Camley for Cartoonist of the year and Simon Bain for financial/business journalist of the year.

David Pratt, of the Herald and Sunday Herald, was named reporter of the year and journalist of the year and Sunday Herald editor Richard Walker won awards for both front page of the year and scoop of the year for its coverage of the Ryan Giggs privacy controversy.
