“It was great to see so many entries, especially from categories such as Young Achiever of the year and Regional Newspaper of the year. I’d like to thank all the judges that painstakingly went through every submission. The quality of the award entries was exceptional and whether you have won an award or not, thank you for entering; you are all winners!” said ACE Chair James Beardow.
