Judges will be looking for a stand-out exclusive that perfectly serves and reflects the interests of your readers.  Originality, relevance to brand and quality of execution will all be considered.  The story or content must be original to your title/site and you must have been the first to break the story. 

Please submit a supporting statement of no more than 300 words. Please include a word count.


Line managers should submit one piece of work for this award. Should you wish to enter more than once for this category a separate entry must be submitted for each scoop.  The scoop must have been published during the period 1 January to 31 December 2016.

Please note – the title's editor should ratify each entry but may not be listed as an entrant as they are eligible to enter the main BSME Awards.
