THE Newbury Weekly News has been shortlisted for two prestigious national awards.

The paper has been nominated in the Printed Innovation of the Year (UK and International) category at the news awards 2015 for its augmented reality 3D app. It will be up against the Guardian Print Centre, the Daily Telegraph, the Sunday Times, Rheinische Post (Germany) and Saachische Zeitung (Germany).

The NWN has also been shortlisted in the blue riband Fujifim Grand Prix award, which recognises the newspaper brand that brings together “the most cohesive and compelling ‘print-digital-business’ offer – The Total Package”.

In this category, the NWN is up against The Guardian, The Independent, Trinity Mirror and the Eastern Daily Press.

NWN chief executive James Gurney said: “It’s fantastic to be shortlisted for these highly recognised industry awards. It will be even more fantastic for a small, highly-regarded and independently-owned paper to win.”

The winners of the newsawards 2015 will be announced at a ceremony in the Lancaster Hotel, London, on Wednesday, April 29, hosted by comedian Al Murray.
