H&I media awards 2020 winners.jpg


The media awards were introduced in 1991 to promote and reward excellence in journalism in the Highlands and Islands. They are presented annually at the Press Ball.

The awards recognise the year’s best stories and pictures in categories including news, sport, features, photography and business.

Judges also choose an overall Journalist of the Year and award the prestigious Barron Trophy for lifetime achievement in journalism in the Highlands and Islands.

Principal sponsor of the 2024 awards is Diageo, with key support from Statkraft, Highlands and Islands Enterprise, the National Union of Journalists, Bòrd na Gàidhlig, Hub North Scotland, Highland Tourism CIC, Inverness Chamber of Commerce, and Kane Partnership.

We look forward to welcoming everyone to our event at the Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness, 2nd February 2024. ENTER HERE
