Guardian wins Newspaper of the Year
From The G:
The Guardian was named newspaper of the year at the British Press Awards last night, six months after its historic change from broadsheet to Berliner format. The home secretary, Charles Clarke, presented the prize to the paper's editor, Alan Rusbridger, praising the Guardian for its new design and for its intelligent contribution to the British press.
Rusbridger said: "It was the most important year in the Guardian's recent history. In many respects it has been a lonely year, but I always had the conviction that one of the most important things about the British press is its variety and it would have been a dull old world if we had followed everyone else tabloid. This award celebrates something different, and that we have succeeded in our ambitions."
