THE Croydon Advertiser has been nominated in six categories at the 2014 EDF Energy London and South of England Media Awards.
We are up against the Hampshire Chronicle, Kent & Sussex Courier, and the Kent Messenger in the Weekly (Paid-for) Newspaper category, while our front page following the inquest into the tragic death of three-year-old Olivia Langley is shortlised in the Front Page of the Year category - and award we won last year.
Chief Reporter Gareth Davies is nominated in three categories - Weekly Print Journalist of the Year, Feature Writer of the Year and Digital Journalist of the Year - while Alex Leys, the man responsible for many of our striking, visually arresting front pages, is up for Designer of the Year.
Advertiser editor Glenn Ebrey said: "To get six nominations, in awards which include a string of big daily papers on the south coast, is a wonderful achievement and testament to the hard work and dedication of my team.
"I hope we'll be celebrating next month but, to coin a cliche, I think we're already winners by getting this far."
The awards take place at The AMEX Stadium, home of Brighton & Hove Albion FC, on November 13.
