Double celebrations for The Lincolnite

News from the team: The Lincolnite celebrating its second birthday, as well as being nominated for a prestigious award.

In addition to celebrating its second birthday this week, The Lincolnite team has been been nominated for a prestigious award.

The Lincolnite is shortlisted in the Best Local/Regional News Site category in the Online Media Awards 2012.

The team is up against some big names in the industry, such as the Manchester Evening News, Liverpool Echo and the Belfast Telegraph, to name a few.

The Lincolnite started as a small project in May 2010. Fast-forward two years and almost 3,000 stories later, the site is now read by more than 50,000 people every month.

We feel it is is a huge achievement for publishers Stonebow Media to be shortlisted alongside established news organisations.

As a thank you to all our readers and collaborators in the past two years, we prepared this video:
