Front Page of the Year: The shortlist

It was a pleasure as always to catch up with old colleagues at the Press Awards judging day in London last week. I am now looking forward to the event itself next month ... a guaranteed great night out. The shortlists have been announced now and are listed here. Nice to see so many people I have worked with and trained included. One of my favourite awards is Front Page of the Year. Page 1 is such a critical and creative part of what newspapers do. Persuading people to pick up a newspaper by using a mix of words, images, type and colour on a piece of paper is a great art. The shortlisted six in this year's awards are all excellent and there is a good mix - three qualities, one middle-market, two red-tops, two Sundays, four dailies - and six strong stories. A tough task for the judges ... which would you go for?
NB: I wasn't a judge in this category and have no idea who has won.
