Winners of the 2016 Write Awards

A huge thank you to all of you who attended the 2016 Write Awards last night. We were thrilled to see such a packed event with so many people passionate about good media representation about violence against women. Our fantastic compere Talat Yaqoob held the evening together, reminding us that while the Write Awards may only be an annual event, we can hold our media accountable all year round. We would like to give thanks to our speaker Cabinet Secretary Angela Constance and our MSP sponsor Christina McKelvie; it is wonderful to have MSPs who are actively and vocally challenging the narrative that says violence against women is ever acceptable and we are glad to have their support. Huge thanks as well to our wonderful panel of judges and of course all the writers who entered this year's competition.
