Top award for Evening Star

YOUR Evening Star editorial team is today celebrating after scooping a prestigious award. At the EDF Energy East of England Media Awards 2007 the Star's Somebody's Daughter Campaign was announced winner of Community Campaign of the Year.

YOUR Evening Star has hit the gold standard again - this time for its caring and compassionate community coverage.

The Star, currently Britain's daily newspaper of the year and the UK's community newspaper of the year, has won another community news accolade.

At the EDF Energy East of England Media Awards 2007 the Star's Somebody's Daughter Campaign was announced winner of Community Campaign of the Year.

The Evening star's coverage was described as “controversial, brave and attitude changing” at a luncheon ceremony at Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire, attended by journalists, broadcasters and newspaper editors from across the region.

Neil Puffett, political reporter, was also celebrating after being short-listed for print journalist of the year (daily) and design editor Jon Elsey was highly commended by judges for his front page designs.

Star editor Nigel Pickover said: “This is a fantastic boost for our campaign and recognition for our work in the community.”
