Selecting the first winner was very difficult and we expect that to be the case every month, such is the standard of our writers.

Over eighty writers were considered for the first award in April and they expect that as many as five hundred will enter by the end of the year.

DSG believe that with their huge audience writers are able to quickly raise their profile and gain valuable insights into writing for today’s modern web based audience.

Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait, had this to say, “We have put together a platform in Sport.co.uk that provides writers with the opportunity to gain valuable skills and exposure and we are extremely pleased to reward the best sports journalism writing that we believe can be found anywhere online every month rather than just every year.

Selecting the first winner was very difficult and we expect that to be the case every month, such is the standard of our writers.

We receive many requests every day to write on the network which is an extremely positive position to be in and suggests to us that we are doing things well.”

Simon Boynton, Managing Director of DSG, believes that Sport.co.uk will be the perfect venue for Sports Jouranlists. “Sport.co.uk has grown rapidly since its re-launch in mid January in both coverage and readership and we are extremely proud that our writers have grown with us and the audience.

We have no doubt that the DSG Writer of the Month award will become the biggest award of its kind for sports writers.”

Digital Sports Group are the official partners of the PFA and publish sites such as football.co.uk, sport.co.uk and the Footymad network.
