2017 INSP Awards celebrate the best of what street papers have to offer

Every year, INSP honours the many great qualities of its street paper members, from their inspiring stories to their innovative design and artwork.

A couple of weeks ago, in the midst of this year’s Global Street Paper Summit in Manchester, the 2017 INSP Awards saw delegates pack in to the city’s Bridgewater Hall to celebrate another year of outstanding and often ground-breaking work.

At the end of the night, special recognition was paid to INSP’s Honorary President Serge Lareault, with a Lifetime Achievement award, ahead of him stepping down from his post.

After the ceremony, delegates were treated to dinner, and celebrations continued into the small hours.

The INSP team was on hand to document the night’s event for all those unable to attend.
