Baldy blogger wins regional journalism prize

Adrian Sudbury, who has blogged about his experiences as a sufferer of terminal leukaemia, was named multimedia journalist of the year in the Press Gazette’s Regional Press Awards on Friday.

Huddersfield Daily Examiner journalist Sudbury accepted the award with a video message, while at the ceremony his parents asked the audience to support his bone marrow donation campaign.

The campaign, which aims to make education about bone marrow, blood and organ donation a compulsory part of sixth-form education in the UK, has already led to a meeting with Gordon Brown for Sudbury.

The Hull Daily Mail was named multimedia publisher of the year and daily newspaper of the year (above 40k) at the awards, and picked up the prize for best front page.
