The Sunday Sun title will face the nationals at the newsawards
A regional Sunday newspaper will enter a national competition for a prestigious industry award.
The shortlist was unveiled for the print section of the 2021 Newsawards ahead of a ceremony to be held in November.
Among the nominees is Newcastle’s Sunday Sun, the only regional title to be selected for the Sunday Newspaper of the Year.
The title owned by Reach plc faces competition from its domestic partner, the Sunday Mirror, as well as The Mail on Sunday, The Observer, The Sun on Sunday, Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Times.
The Journal, the Sunday Sun’s sister daily in Newcastle, is also nominated for regional newspaper of the year.
It faces competition from the Liverpool Echo, Dundee The Courier daily, Irish News, Aberdeen’s Press & Journal and The Evening Standard in London.
The Weekly Newspaper of the Year will be fought between Cambridge Independent, Ham & High, Hereford Times, Kent Messenger, Lynn News, Newbury Weekly News, Stratford Herald and Newsquest, the recently launched headline The National Wales.
Five London titles – EC1 Echo, Enfield Dispatch, Hackney Citizen, KCW London and Waltham Forest Echo – will vie for the title of ICNN Independent Community Newspaper of the Year, with the Edinburgh Reporter.
The Citizen and KCW London are also nominated in the Niche Market Newspaper of the Year category.
Gary Cullum, Director of Newsawards, said: âAfter such a difficult time for the news media industry, it is fantastic to see such impressive nominations from across the country and around the world.
âOur two panels of judges saw an excellent range of print, digital and commercial entries, resulting in an exciting list of nominations for 2021.â
Nominations for the corporate and digital categories will be announced next week.
