The chief reporter of the Oban Times’s sister paper, The Argyllshire Advertiser, has been shortlisted in the Highlands and Island Media Awards.
Colin Cameron, from Strachur, will have to wait till February 1 to see if he has beaten off the three other contenders – former Advertiser reporter, Rita Campbell, of the Press and Journal, the Inverness Courier news team and freelance Moira Kerr from Oban.
Judges had the onerous task of assessing 109 entries in 11 sections covering newspaper, online and broadcast news stories and features, as well as the year’s top photographs.
The winners will be announced at the Highlands and Islands Press Ball and Media Awards, to be held on Friday February 1, 2019 at the Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness.
Gordon Fyfe, chairman of the Highlands and Islands Media Awards judging panel, said: ‘The media awards recognise and reward the best in journalism across our dispersed area which stretches from Shetland to Argyll and from Moray to the Outer Hebrides.
‘Once again, we were delighted with the number and high standard of entries and choosing a shortlist has been an extremely difficult task.
‘Thanks to everyone for taking the time to enter and congratulations to our finalists. We look forward to revealing the winners in February.’
