The Evening Standard is a free local daily newspaper, published Monday–Friday in tabloid format in London, England. It is the dominant regional evening paper for London and the southeast of England, with coverage of national and international news and a strong emphasis on City of London finance. In October 2009 the paper ended a 180-year history of paid circulation and doubled its circulation as part of a change in its business plan.[3]



The newspaper was founded by the barrister, Stanley Lees Giffard, on 21 May 1827, as the Standard.[4] The early owner of the paper was Charles Baldwin. Under the ownership of James Johnstone The Standard became a morning paper from 29 June 1857, with The Evening Standard being published from 11 June 1859. The Standard gained eminence for its detailed foreign news, with its reporting events of the American Civil War (1861–1865), of the Austro-Prussian War of 1866, and of the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, all contributing to a rise in circulation.[5]

The Evening Standard has sponsored the annual Evening Standard Theatre Awards since the 1950s.[citation needed] The newspaper has also awarded the annual Evening Standard Pub of the Year (discontinued 2007)[citation needed] and the Evening Standard British Film Awards since the 1970s.[citation needed]
