Local Newspaper Week
Local Newspaper Week is an annual national campaign celebrating the important role played by local media - local newspapers in print and on digital platforms - in communities across the UK. It is run by the local media industry and coordinated by the Newspaper Society, the voice of Britain’s local and regional media.
Hundreds of local newspapers take part each year by running Week-themed content and initiatives celebrating the industry such as features, supplements, or competitions for readers. Some newspapers go the extra mile with initiatives such as good news only editions, reader surgeries, or inviting a guest editor to take the helm for a day.
This year, the theme is Making a Difference and the Week will highlight the power of local media to make a difference to the lives of ordinary individuals in a way that no other media can.
