Readers can now vote for the Lancashire Evening Post in an online poll for a campaign highlighting the positive power of the local media.
Our Twilight series, highlighting the lives of those battling poverty and living on the margins of society, is one of 30 campaigns appearing in the Newspaper Society’s Making A Difference showcase as part of Local Newspaper Week.
There will be an online public vote to find the best of the 30 regional press campaigns which have made a difference to the communities they serve.
Voting will close on midnight on Wednesday, and the winner will be announced at the Society of Editors Regional Press Awards on Friday.
Supporting Local Newspaper Week, Dame Helen Mirren said: “Through their reporting on local events and performances, local and regional newspapers play an important part in promoting and sustaining the arts at a local level.
“Theatres up and down Britain rely on this exposure and support from their local papers to communicate effectively with both new and existing audiences.
“Of course, this is not the only important function performed by local newspapers - they campaign on behalf of their readers, expose wrongdoing and corruption, and uphold free speech.”
