Journalism Awards

To celebrate the Economist reaching 300 subscribers, on 23rd April 2009 it decided to run a series of awards for the best and brightest in each section of the media. The decision was made by the editor, and was not based on politics, merely on the quality, and sometimes the fun level, of the newspapers concerned.
