Lincolnshire Business magazine shortlisted for national award

Lincoln-based Stonebow Media has been shortlisted for Best Business/Finance News Site at The Drum Online Media Awards 2015 with Lincolnshire Business magazine.

The company, publisher also of award-winning news website The Lincolnite, launched the online magazine just six months ago.

It will be competing against three other sites, including, Progressive Customer Publishing, and Quartz.

The winners of the award, which recognises the best in online news and journalism, will be announced on June 10 at a ceremony at the Marriott Grosvenor Square in London.

Now in its fifth year, The Online Media Awards acknowledges the cleverest, boldest and most original purveyors of news and views from around the world, in an aim to find the best application of talent and technology online from both.

Among the judges are Mark McSherry, a New York-based business journalist and media professor who writes for The Guardian and Forbes and is Professor of Communication Arts at St Francis College, Brooklyn, New York; and Raymond Snoddy, presenter of BBC’s Newswatch, previously a journalist for the Financial Times and The Times.

Last year the Best Business/Finance News Site was awarded to Forbes Media with receiving a commendation.

Founding Director of Stonebow Media Daniel Ionescu said: “We are very proud at Stonebow Media of what we were able to achieve with our Lincolnshire Business magazine.

“Merely six months after launch, closing in to 10,000 subscribers (and over half a million pages read so far) Lincolnshire Business magazine shows that we continue to be at the top of digital publishing in Lincolnshire.”
