Here is a sign of these harsh economic times. The Newspaper Society has confirmed it is cancelling all three of its annual award events for 2009, HoldtheFrontPage reports today.
The cancelled events are the Circulation, Editorial and Promotions Awards, the Weekly Newspaper Awards and the Advertising and Digital Media Awards. HTFP quotes the NS as saying of the cancellation of the awards: "This is partly due to current market conditions and partly because we want to look at improving the format of our awards going forward."
