Sports writer Suzy Wrack reaches finals of prestigious British Journalism Awards 2019

Guardian writer Suzy Wrack has reached the finals of the British Journalism Awards 2019

Suzy Wrack has been named in the finals of the 2019 British Journalism Awards in the Sports Journalism category.

Suzy, an FA Level 1 coach, writes for The Guardian newspaper, has produced consistently outstanding, thought-provoking and innovative copy.

After three weeks of deliberations involving 60 judges and 560 entries, the shortlists were finalised during two days of jury deliberations.

Chair of the judges and Press Gazette editor-in-chief Dominic Ponsford said: “One quality shines through all the shortlists: bravery. Again and again journalists have pitted themselves against powerful vested interests to provide a voice for the voiceless and shine a light into the murkiest areas of Britain and the wider world.

“In these days of social media hate mobs it takes courage and a cast-iron skin for a journalist to expose pretty much any uncomfortable truths. In many cases the British Journalism Awards finalists have placed themselves in physical danger in order to report the news.

“Press Gazette thanks and salutes all this year’s entrants and finalists.”

The winners of the 2019 British Journalism Awards will be announced at the awards dinner which is being held on 10 December at the Hilton Bankside in London.
