Sheffield's independent publisher Now Then has won two awards at this year's Independent Media Awards. The magazine, which was founded in the city in 2008, picked up the Citizen Journalism Award and were named the Best Regional/Local Outlet of the Year.

Sam Walby, the magazine's editor-in-chief said:

“We're chuffed and honoured that our work at Now Then has been recognised at the Independent Media Association awards, it really means a lot.”

The awards are handed out annually by the Independent Media Association, which fights for the rights of the public to receive news free from corporate and state control.

Recent pieces in Now Then have explored the treatment of children by South Yorkshire Police, GP surgery closures in Sheffield, black film culture in 1990s Sheffield and the future of independent venue The Leadmill.

Now Then is part of South Yorkshire social enterprise Opus Independents, which also hosts the Festival of Debate and the UBI Lab Network.
