Award for The Detail

“The Detail” was pronounced Specialist Website of the year at the awards ceremony in Belfast’s Europa Hotel, less than three months into the project’s existence.

In their citation, the judges said the site was sure to attract those working in papers and broadcasters to see what might make a story for them.

They added: “Sadly, it’s this type of story which would be familiar in print publications in times past, but fewer resources do mean that news editors and editors have less opportunity to let a reporter spend days at a time on just one piece.”
