Three awards for Scottish Daily Mail
The Scottish Daily Mail has been voted Newspaper of the Year in the prestigious Scottish Press Awards. The paper also collected an award for Front Page of the Year for 'Going Nowhere', reporting on the closure of the M8 during the snow and Jonathan Brocklebank was chosen as Newspaper Feature Writer of the Year.
Editor Chris Williams accepted the Newspaper of the Year award from the Rt Hon George Reid, chairman of the judging panel and commented: "It is a tribute to the hard work of our staff and contributors all over Scotland. I am particularly pleased for Jonathan, who has been runner-up three times."
Since the Mail re-launched in Scotland in 1995, it has more than trebled its circulation while most newspapers have been in decline. Along the way it has eclipsed the Scottish Daily Express and overtaken the Herald and the Scotsman, now outselling the two papers combined by a remarkable 20,000 copies.
