BBC International Editor Jeremy Bowen and the group of journalists who exposed a culture of misogyny and sexism in the Welsh Rugby Union were among the winners of the Journalists’ Charity’s Wales Media Awards 2023.

Jeremy Bowen won the headline Outstanding Contribution to Journalism award in recognition of his 40-year career reporting on conflicts from around the world.

Current affairs programme BBC Wales Investigates and freelance print and online journalist Liz Perkins were the joint recipients of the Journalism of the Year award for their separate investigations into the WRU scandal.

Around 200 guests from the Welsh media and sponsor organisations attended the event at Cardiff’s Parkgate Hotel which was hosted by the BBC’s Lucy Owen and ITV’s Jonathan Hill.

An experienced panel of Judges chose the winners in 20 categories from more than 200 entries – a record for the awards.
