The North Norfolk News has been nominated for a prestigious regional media award.
It has been shortlisted in the Weekly Paid for Newspaper of the Year category of the EDF Energy East Of England Media Awards.
The other finalists are our sister paper from the Archant stable, the Lowestoft Journal, along with the Brentwood Gazette and Essex Chronicle.
News editor Richard Batson said: 'Our team has done a terrific job this year, covering big stories, as well as grass roots community issues, along with some terrific photography and providing a sounding board for debate through our letters page and website - so this nomination is a reward for all their hard work.'
Glenn Ebrey, editor of the Croydon Advertiser and a member of the judging panel, said: 'We were looking for creativity, quality, and originality across the categories. We saw some fantastic work in amongst the entries and it was a tough task to whittle them down to a shortlist.'
