Caerphilly Observer has been shortlisted in the Community Journalism of the Year category in the 2019 Wales Media Awards.

The Wales Media Awards aim to celebrate and promote great journalism produced from Wales. In this category, the judges were looking for engaging and relevant content, ease of use, quality and accuracy of writing and high production and editorial values.



The Caerphilly Observer has won the award four times before and is hoping to make it a fifth consecutive success.

Richard Gurner, Publisher and Editor of Caerphilly Observer, said:

“Being nominated again for this award is a testament to the hard work of our team. It takes a lot to put a newspaper out and it’s an honour to be recognised in this way by others in the industry.”

The awards ceremony will take place on Friday, March 22, at the Mercure Holland House Hotel in Cardiff and will be hosted by BBC Wales presenter Lucy Owen and ITV Cymru Wales’ Jonathan Hill.
