Immediate Media’s nods include two nominations for Best Launch for the Radio Times Enterprise and Radio Times Discover TV initiatives, as well as Digital Commercial Team for the Radio Times Digital Sales Team.

Haymarket Media Group, which publishes Campaign and Media Week, received four nominations including one in the Consumer Digital Publisher of the year category.

This year’s awards also include two new categories, Digital Commercial Individual and Digital Marketing Campaign Innovation.

Tim Cain, the managing director of AOP, said: "The entries to this year’s awards were amongst the strongest the AOP has ever seen – a true reflection of the strong position the online publishing industry is in.

"We were particularly delighted to receive a large number of submissions for our two new categories, which aim to reward the very best in digital publishing innovation. It’s never an easy task for the judges to select a shortlist, but I’d like to thank and commend them on a job well done."

The quality of entries meant that the 32-strong judging panel was unable to reach a decision on the shortlist for the Digital Ad Ops Team, Media Technology Partner and Commercial Partner categories, and will deliberate in the coming days.

The complete shortlist will be revealed early next week and the awards ceremony will take place on 3 July. More information about the AOP Awards is available on the AOP website.
