Regional Awards Round-Up

The South-East

Archant’s HamHigh.co.uk was named Website of the Year at last week’s EDF Energy awards for London and the South of England.

HoldTheFrontPage.co.uk reports that 2008 saw the site surpass 50,000 unique users per month for the first time and achieve in excess of 100,000 page impressions for the second time.

This year’s record-breaking figures followed a concerted attempt to increase online figures and were boosted by coverage of Tottenham Hotspur’s League Cup victory.

“The judges were impressed by the story teasers on the homepage and liked the fact there was a good number of headlines without the reader being overwhelmed with information,” according to HoldTheFrontPage.

The North

Meanwhile, the shortlist for the Yorkshire Press Awards was unveiled last week with two sites nominated for the title of Best Multi Platform News Package.

John Meehan and the Hull Daily Mail (Northcliffe) will battle it out against Ben Nolan and the Scarborough Evening News (Johnston Press) for the trophy.

The Yorkshire Press Awards are to be held in Wakefield next month.

HoldTheFrontPage has a list of the non-digital category nominations.
