A Highland News and Media journalist is in contention for a prize at the Proud Scotland Awards 2022.

Sports reporter Andrew Henderson was nominated in the media category for writing on his own Pride of the Terraces website, as well as HN media titles.

The long-form journalistic platform, started in October 2019, is dedicated to telling the stories of LGBT+ athletes and sports people.

The Proud Scotland Awards are designed to celebrate the LGBTQI+ community by recognising the outstanding work and commitment of individuals and organisations within and supportive of our community in Scotland.

A delighted Andrew (26) said: “I'm over the moon to be shortlisted for a Proud Scotland Award.

"This came totally out of the blue, but to be nominated alongside people who I know care as much about inclusion and diversity in the media as I do is an honour.

"I'm glad that my work with Highland News and Media and Pride of the Terraces has been able to reach people to the extent someone thought to nominate me, and I look forward to seeing who wins the award in June – anyone would be a worthy victor."

A spokesperson for the Proud Scotland Awards said: “Over the last two years we have awarded lots of very special people and organisations in recognition of their work and dedication to others.

“We are delighted to be opening up nominations again for Proud Scotland Awards 2022 where more will be honoured for all that they do.”

Also shortlisted in the media category are: Catriona Stewart (The Glasgow Times), Katy J (Capital Scotland), Scene Alba Magazine, Somewhere: For Us, and STV.

The winners will be announced in a ceremony at the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow on Friday, June 3.
