The BV scoops a Highly Commended at national award ceremony in Mayfair!


The London Marriott Grosvenor Square was the place to be last night for the prestigious 2023 Newspaper and Magazine Awards. The glitzy evening was presented by Niall Paterson of SKY News, and 19 hotly anticipated categories were awarded winners.

As a tiny team, just to be shortlisted for Regional Publication Of The Year, and to be considered among the top three regional titles in the country, was an honour. On the night, to receive a Highly Commended was beyond anything we expected. Only a handful of the 19 categories awarded a Highly Commended accolade.

The BV impressed the panel of 25 industry expert judges, who awarded the distinction, commenting that we exceeded exceptionally high and challenging targets. The judges also commended The BV for establishing a genuine connection with our audience.

We were delighted to be there, it was a great night, and we’re incredibly proud to see how far we’ve come.
