This Is is today nominated for another top award.

The site, already UK Website of the Year, is shortlisted in the 2002 BT North of England Media Awards.

It is the second successive year we have been nominated for BT's Northern Website of the Year title. Last year, we not only took the crown but went on to win the national award, too. This year's winner will be announced at a ceremony at York Racecourse on May 3.

The nomination is one of five garnered by the Telegraph & Argus. The paper itself is nominated as Daily Newspaper of the Year, and Features Editor David Barnett and Photographer Steve Bootle are shortlisted for individual categories.

And Web Editor David Behrens, last year's Northern Internet Journalist of the Year, is again nominated for the 2002 award.
