Witty one-line won­der Seymour wins top NewsCorp award

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

NEWSLO­CAL has picked up two ma­jor prizes at the 2015 News Awards, which recog­nise ex­cel­lence in NewsCorp publi­ca­tions across Aus­tralia.

The Went­worth Courier, sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion to the Stan­dard, was named com­mu­nity news­pa­per of the year, while NewsLo­cal deputy editor-in-chief Trevor Seymour won the award for best head­lines, beat­ing com­pe­ti­tion from metropoli­tan and re­gional ti­tles.

NewsLo­cal editor-in-chief Kathy Lipari said it was fab­u­lous to see the fan­tas­tic ef­forts of NewsLo­cal staff recog­nised in this way.

“Trevor Seymour is one of the hard­est-work­ing peo­ple on the en­tire NewsLo­cal team and thor­oughly de­serves the gong for his clever and witty head­lines, while the Went­worth Courier un­der Steve Howard con­tin­ues to set new stan­dards of ex­cel­lence week in week out,” she said.

NewsCorp Aus­tralia chief ex­ec­u­tive Ju­lian Clarke, who hosted the cer­e­mony, paid trib­ute to the “out­stand­ing work” of staff who pro­duce the com­pany’s news­pa­pers, mag­a­zines and web­sites.
