Austin Lafferty, Chairman of the Judges for the Scottish Press Awards, said: “Where would we be without the reporters and commentators to make sense of the world, taming its confusion and teasing out its consequences?

“The Scottish Press Awards is something of a feast for the judges – a wealth of the finest writing anywhere, but just happening to be made in Scotland”.
