SoGlos's parent company SoPublishing has been shortlisted in the 2023 PressGazette Future of Media Awards.

PressGazette's Future of Media Awards are once again celebrating excellence in digital news media in the UK and globally in 2023 — and we're thrilled to reveal SoPublishing has been shortlisted in the 'Future of Media Innovation' category alongside the Financial Times, Reach and PinkNews.

Independent media company SoPublishing is the parent company of Gloucestershire's leading media brand SoGlos and it has made it through to the finals of the awards thanks to its all-new SoCMS — a cutting-edge, custom-built digital media platform featuring a seamless writing-subbing workflow and AI-powered content management automation.

The media industry-leading awards are all about recognising the best in online journalism, as well as technical and commercial innovation, which provides a platform for great editorial work. Competition was reported to be particularly tough in 2023, with 164 total entries being whittled down to around 60 on the shortlist.

'It's an honour to be shortlisted for these coveted media industry awards and a further endorsement of our mission is to revolutionise regional media through our tech-first approach,' SoPublishing's group editor Michelle Fyrne said.

'We have to agree SoPublishing is a worthy contender for the Future of Media Innovation category, but are nonetheless flattered to be up against some huge names in the publishing industry,' she added. 

The awards' judging panel includes representatives from the likes of PressGazette, United Robots, The New Statesman and Sky News.

Last year's finalists include Bloomberg, The Economist, The Times, ITV News and The Spectator, as just a few examples of the media stalwarts to have been recognised.

The anticipated awards ceremony and reveal of this year's winners will take place in London on Wednesday 6 September 2023, following PressGazette's annual Future of Media Technology Conference.
