AJ shortlisted for hat-trick of media awards

  • Comment

The AJ has been shortlisted in three categories in this year’s International Building Press (IBP) awards

Richard Waite (pictured right) is nominated for News Reporter of the Year – a title he won in 2014 – while Simon Aldous (pictured left) is in the running for Multimedia Journalist of the Year.

Richard was shortlisted for his coverage of the Grenfell Tower disaster, the biggest breaking news story of the year. Two exclusive stories on Neo Bankside residents taking Tate to court for violation of privacy, and Make’s removal from Gary Neville’s Manchester tower scheme, saw him scoop the nomination. 

Deputy production editor Simon Aldous is nominated for the first time for his weekend newsletters. Sent exclusively to AJ subscribers, the emails engagingly summarise the week’s events.

The AJ’s website has been shortlisted for Digital Service of the Year for the second year in a row. AJ head of engagement Mary Douglas was recently nominated for the industry-wide PPA Digital Awards in recognition of her work managing AJ’s digital channels.

Last year managing editor Will Hurst won three IBP awards, including the night’s top honour, Journalist of the Year, for his Garden Bridge exposés. Former AJ architecture editor Laura Mark also won Multimedia Journalist of the Year in 2016.

The winners will be announced at the Annual Journalism Awards dinner at the Four Seasons hotel on 30 November.
