We’re thrilled to have won the bronze prize at the Media Week Awards 2022 for Media Brand of the Year.
The Independent was not just the only news title to receive an award in this category, it was also the only news brand to be shortlisted.
Trade marketing director for The Independent Beth Gordon said: “We’re grateful to be recognised by the Media Week Awards and it’s an honour to be the only news title to be selected as a Media Brand of the Year. It’s no overstatement to say that The Independent changes lives every day. Whether it’s reporting on the ground from Ukraine, fighting for the rights of refugees, demanding the end of the death penalty, helping to raise vast amounts of money for those in need, partnering with Pride in London or campaigning for free school lunches for 800,000 children in poverty, we are dedicated to amplifying marginalised voices. We truly believe that our mission, making change happen, has never been as important as it is today.”
