GNM put in a strong showing on the shortlist for this year's AOP Digital Publishing Awards with 14 nominations, followed closely by Telegraph Media Group with 11.

United Business Media is leading among B2B publishers with nine nods.

The category of digital advertising sales team 2011 will be contested by 13 teams including IPC Digital, Telegraph Media Group Digital and Conde Nast Digital.

Among the 12 entries in the commercial partnership category are Dennis Publishing & Disney Tron, Telegraph Media Group and VW Passat, and Microsoft Advertising's MSN & Spice.

Brand Republic has been nominated for two awards, business website of the year and editorial team of the year, just two of publisher Haymarket's six nominations.

Lee Baker, director of AOP, said: "I’m thrilled with this year’s shortlist. The fact that we’ve received so many entries for 2011 - with entries up 25% on last year - confirms that the digital publishing industry is back on its feet.

"Our judges had a formidable task in selecting our nominees, and I believe that the calibre of this year’s shortlist is remarkably strong and reflects the breadth of endeavour."

The awards will be held at the Roundhouse in Camden on 9 June.
