• Jeremy Selwyn, London Evening Standard
• Mark Scott, The Sentinel
• Oli Scarff, Getty Images
• Richard Pohle, The Times
• Suzanne Plunkett, Thomson Reuters
Press Gazette editor Dominic Ponsford said: “We launched the British Journalism Awards last year partly as a response to the one-sided portrayal of our industry which was on display at the Leveson Inquiry.
“This year there were more than 300 awards entries representing every major British newspaper group and broadcaster as well as many specialist titles.
“Time and again they illustrate the vital role journalists play in British society, stepping in to highlight injustice and a shine light when politicians, business people and others in positions of power let us down.”

London based film stills expert Kobal Collection has announced its representation of STUDIOCANAL FILMS LTD.
The collection of over 800 quintessentially British titles reflects the life of the ‘rich and the poor, the mad and the bad, the sad and the funny, the scary and the heart-warming.’
This is the story of Britain shaped by the 20th Century and contains classics such as the Carry Ons and the
Ealing Comedies. Occasionally the titles take us abroad, reaching out to the edges of the globe as British films spread far and wide, many earning an international following.
Dave Kent, Kobal Director says; “this is an astonishing collection – which includes my British favourite, The Third Man and means we can now provide access to the very best of British cinema’.
Massimo Moretti, STUDIOCANAL UK Library Commercial Development Manager says: “We’re happy to be able to work together with the prestigious Kobal Collection to further highlight the depth and richness of our historical stills collection.”

This in from Arctic Photo picture library:
First Air, the airline that services most of the Canadian Arctic, has selected one of Arcticphoto’s images to decorate the tail of its new Boeing 737- 400 flagship aircraft that currently flies between Ottawa and Baffin Island.
The photo of an Inuit hunter leaping between two ice floes caught the imagination of First Air’s marketing department. “They reversed the image,” explained Bryan Alexander, co-owner of the Arcticphoto picture library, “Used the correct way round, it looked like the guy was jumping off the back of the aircraft and that probably wasn’t the message they wanted to convey.”
This is the second Arcticphoto image that First Air have used on the tail of one of their Boeing jet aircraft.
