AN article from The National and one from the Sunday National have both been shortlisted for this year’s Write to End Violence Against Women Awards, with another given an honourable mention.

The competition, now in its seventh year, celebrates outstanding journalism and writing on gender equality and violence against women. Both our nominations come in the Best Piece – News category, Caitlin Logan for The National with ‘Warning over Pause Project’ that only supports women using contraception; and Karin Goodwin, The Ferret and The Sunday National: ‘Call to review domestic murders to help prevent further deaths’.

The National’s Gaelic columnist Calum MacLeod receives an honourable mention for ‘Sgrios-cinnidh ann an Canada’.

The Awards are sponsored by NUJ Scotland and NUJ Glasgow Branch. Winners will be announced at a ceremony on December 4.
