CHRISTMAS came early for the team at Shetland News when we learned that we have been shortlisted in two categories at the 2016 Highlands and Islands Media Awards.
We are a finalist for the ‘top story of the year’ award, where our chief reporter Neil Riddell’s persistent efforts over the past 12 months to hold Loganair bosses to account have been recognised.
Shetland News has again been shortlisted in the ‘best use of digital media’ category, an award we won back in 2013.
Our colleagues at the Shetland Times are also finalists in two categories.
The full shortlist of all Highlands and Islands Media award categories can be found here.
The winners will be announced during a press ball in the Drumossie Hotel, in Inverness on 5 February 2016.
