CN editor up for national journalism award

CN’s Tom Fitzpatrick has been shortlisted as Trade Editor of the Year at the BSME’s national awards.

The British Society of Magazine Editors’ annual awards brings together nominees from across UK media giants including The Economist, FT, Wired and Cosmopolitan.

Tom has been shortlisted as Trade / Professional Editor of the Year for work including the launch of CN’s mental health campaign Mind Matters and gender equality campaign Inspire Me.

Recent content, including coverage of Carillion’s collapse and investigations into the gender pay gap and projects such as Spurs’ new stadium and Crossrail, have received widespread national media coverage and led to multiple awards for the team.

CN’s online traffic has increased by 61 per cent (users) and 50 per cent (page views) in 2018, alongside growth in its flagship events including the two-day Construction News Summit and CN Awards, as well as doing events outside London for the first time in a decade.

Keely Stocker, editor of CN sister title Drapers, is also shortlisted, as is Ella Mackinnon of The Architects’ Journal for Art Director and Cover of the Year.

Editors from across the UK’s top broadcast, business and consumer titles will gather for the awards on Tuesday 20 November in London.

  • Good luck Tom... taking CN to the next level and making it mainstream relevant. Don't forget to mention how much CN coverage has raised funds for charities.. not just ours!
