MLex coverage shortlisted for UK media award

10 August 2018

MLex Senior Correspondent Matthew Holehouse has been shortlisted for the prestigious British Journalism Awards for Specialist Media for his coverage of the Brexit negotiations.

Holehouse is one of three finalists in the category for Legal news, which recognizes high-quality work that is revelatory, rigorous and serves the public interest.

“Matthew’s work cuts through all the noise around Brexit and shines a light on what the real impact of Brexit will be on legislation, politics, industry and citizens,” said Ana Rita Rego, MLex’s London Managing Editor. “Matthew’s relentless, balanced reporting has made him an authoritative figure in shaping the Brexit debate.”

This is the first year the Press Gazette runs the British Journalism Awards for Specialist Media. The Press Gazette has been rewarding excellence in journalism through the British Journalism Awards for six years, which are now perceived as the UK's equivalent to the Pulitzer Prize in the United States.

The awards ceremony will take place at Stationers’ Hall in London on Monday Sept. 17, 2018.

“I’m delighted that MLex has been ranked among the finalists of the British Journalism Awards for Specialist Media for legal news,” said Bruce Macfarlane, Managing Director for MLex, which is part of the LexisNexis group. “This nomination is in itself a recognition by distinguished judges of the quality and high standards of MLex’s reporting in this competitive space.”

MLex Market Insight is a global news service focused on regulatory risk with newsrooms in 13 cities in 10 countries.

Following is some background on the awards from the Press Gazette’s website

“Business to business and specialist journalism is a multi-billion industry in the UK - even bigger than the consumer media sector.
But until now it has not had its own set of journalism awards.

That is why Press Gazette has launched the British Journalism Awards for Specialist Media.

It aims to recognise the best journalism on niche business and specialist interest magazines and websites. And this event also provides an opportunity to recognise great specialist beat reporters working in other media.

For sponsors it represents an unrivalled opportunity to network with and support the most influential journalists in their markets.”
