About this event

 

Business to business and specialist journalism is a multi-billion industry in the UK - even bigger than the consumer media sector.
But until now it has not had its own set of journalism awards.
That is why Press Gazette has launched the British Journalism Awards for Specialist Media.
It aims to recognise the best journalism on niche business and specialist interest magazines and websites. And this event also provides an opportunity to recognise great specialist beat reporters working in other media.

For sponsors it represents an unrivalled opportunity to network with and support the most influential journalists in their markets.

The event takes place at Stationers’ Hall in London on Monday 17 September 2018.
