Helston Packet's coverage of winter's storms up for award

First published in Cornwall

The Helston Packet's coverage of this winter's storms has been shortlisted for an award.

The cover of the February 12 edition, showing Porthleven's harbour being beaten by huge waves, is in the running to be named “Front Page of the Year” in the EDF Energy South West of England Media Awards.

These awards celebrate the best of print and broadcast journalism in the south west.

The Packet is up against four other front pages of newspapers in the south west, including from Devon and Somerset.

The shortlisted Helston Packet front cover featured a photograph from Packet freelance photographer Christine Hosey, spread over both the front and back pages.

An awards ceremony will take in Bristol on July 3 when the winner of this category, plus many others, will be revealed.

Also in the running for an award is the Packet's sister newspaper in Taunton, the Somerset County Gazette, which is shortlisted to become “Weekly Newspaper of the Year (Paid for).”
