The Trireme -

A trireme

THE TRIREME Award is for the "worst terms since I was last chained to the oars", in the words of one freelance. Continuing a recent run of national dailies who suddenly don't seem to have much money available with which to pay freelances, this month it's awarded to the Daily Telegraph.

According to one freelance submitting to the Rate for the Job, this national newspaper could only find £60 for a foreign news story.
