THE Croydon Advertiser has scooped a hat-trick of awards at a ceremony rewarding the best in regional journalism. Our Time For New Heroes splash, on the eve of the Crystal Palace vs Watford play-off final in May, won the Front Page of the Year prize at the EDF Energy London and South of England Journalism Awards. The judges said: "The fade from the black and white of yesterday's heroes to the bold colour of today's players, works really well. A bold approach, matched by great thought and confidence in the final delivery." Chief reporter Gareth Davies picked up two awards - for Digital Journalist of the Year and Weekly Reporter of the Year. Gareth received particular praise for his investigation into the forgotten victims of the 2011 riots, with the judges saying his stories were "captivating reads." The Advertiser was also highly-commended in two further categories - Weekly Newspaper of the Year and Alex Leys, for Designer of the Year. Editor Glenn Ebrey said: "To win three awards within such a competitive field is a fantastic achievement for all concerned and just reward for everyone's hard work. "I'm delighted for Gareth, who works exceptionally hard, and also with the front page victory - especially when you consider we were up against daily papers from across a huge region."
