The News Awards are a new way of recognising staff in BBC News and Current Affairs making an outstanding contribution to our division. We're looking for people who go above and beyond their day job to greatly enhance our editorial or the way we work, embodying our employee commitments

The awards are designed to encourage creativity, teamwork and innovation; make people proud of their achievements; reward positive cultural change and celebrate success. They're open to anyone in News, plus supporting divisions, and will be judged by a diverse panel from across the BBC plus external industry experts.

The date for News Awards 2020 will be announced later this year.
