Digital Awards Round-Up

Recent regional media awards have bestowed honours upon a local football website and a Yorkshire reporter.

First up are the EDF Energy East of England Media Awards, which named the online output of the Pink ‘Un as the region’s Website of the Year.

Owned by Archant, the website acts as a sister site to the Norwich Evening News and provides updated headlines on Norwich City FC and other local clubs.

According to HoldTheFrontPage.co.uk, the judging panel “praised the website for its good level of interaction and its strong relationship with the sports fans it serves”.

The website hosts a number of popular features including a free bet service and a match predictor game.

Another recent regional prize winner is David Behrens from the Yorkshire Post who was crowned Digital Journalist of the Year at this month’s O2 Media Awards for Yorkshire and Humber.

The Post’s digital editor, who pens the Tech Speak blog, received the accolade at a recent ceremony in Leeds.

While the Highly Commended Digital Journalist titles went to Joanna Hunter from the Hull Daily Mail and David Parkin from The Business Desk.com.

A full list of winners from the inaugural O2 media prizes is on HoldTheFrontPage.co.uk.
