PinkNews.co.uk editor nominated for Stonewall award
PinkNews.co.uk has been recognised for its journalism for the second year running at the Stonewall Awards.
Editor Tony Grew has been nominated in the Journalist of the Year category. Last year PinkNews.co.uk was named Publication of the Year.
Stonewall’s second annual awards ceremony will be held on November 1st at the Victoria Albert Museum in London.
They will be presented by Doctor Who and Any Dream Will Do star John Barrowman, who won Entertainer of the Year last year.
“I am honoured to be nominated for this award,” said Tony Grew, who took over as PinkNews.co.uk editor in January.
The Stonewall Awards are sponsored by Barclays.
They are designed to celebrate the range of positive contributions being made by individuals and organisations to the lives of gay people in Britain.
This year will once again see three of the ten accolades – ‘Hero of the Year,’ ‘Bigot of the Year’ and the ‘Stonewall Barclays Community Group of the Year’ – being chosen by a vote among more than 6,000 Stonewall supporters from across Britain.
The chosen Community Group of the Year will receive a cheque for five thousand pounds to support its work.
Seven other award-winners, such as Journalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year, will be selected by a panel including BBC sports presenter Clare Balding and broadcaster Paul Gambaccini.
