Hull Daily Mail Wins Digital Award
The Hull Daily Mail has added to the trophy cabinet with a Yorkshire Press Award for digital output, reports HoldTheFrontPage.co.uk.
The Northcliffe title took home the award for Best Multi Platform News Package at a ceremony held in Wakefield last week, adding to the growing list of honours bestowed upon the Mail.
Earlier in 2008 the newspaper was named Multimedia Publisher of the Year at the Regional Press Awards, and its user-generated site Your Mail won the Best Use of News Media award at the Newspaper Awards.
The Mail was also recognised in both gold and silver categories for digital innovations at last month’s Newspaper Society Advertising and Digital Media Awards.
Among the other winners at last week’s Yorkshire Press Award was the late journalist Adrian Sudbury, who was honoured posthumously for his Baldy’s Blog and campaigning for greater education about bone marrow donation.
Sudbury, who died from leukaemia in August this year, was named Yorkshire Journalist of the Year.
