The MNA is in the running for two awards at this year’s
The first award we have been shortlisted for is News Website of the Year. MNA Digital entered the new platform Express & Star and Shropshire Star websites.
The second award we have been shortlisted for is Best Use of Advertising Technology. We entered ad booking production system Pulse, which is hosted by sister company PCS.
Digital MD Andy Hill said: “It is fantastic to be recognised for our redesigned websites through our award nomination.
“The new sites are powered by the Washington Post’s Arc Publishing, making the MNA the first UK publisher to use this technology. The sites have changed from an open source CMS to a state-of-the-art digital platform.
“Based on user testing, the redesign gives a cleaner look, making it easier for users to navigate around. The defined areas for key content, like local news demonstrate less clutter.”
The winner will be announced at a gala event at the Royal Lancaster London on April 18.
