Local Hero Award, sponsored by Google News Initiative

This award recognises the value of local journalism and its contribution to society. The AOP invites entries from regional publishers for journalists who are proving that investigative and campaigning journalism is alive and well in the communities of the UK. Our jury will also be looking for journalists who recognise the added power that digital publishing provides for the amplification of local stories and the building of local communities around great journalistic content. This category is free to enter.
