Ehaus Site on Award Shortlist
Yale University Press has been short-listed for a FutureBook Award for best website. The website was built and designed by Ehaus and featured in a recent news article on this site.
FutureBook's Innovation Awards, organised by The Bookseller, aim is to shine a light on success across the industry and new technology and digital partners and collaborators. The winners will be announced during its forthcoming FutureBook 2011 conference on Monday 5th December.
“We have had an amazing number of entries to our innovation awards - 218 in total,” says Sam Missingham at FutureBook. “We want to highlight and celebrate professionals across the trade who are doing the real work to facilitate digital innovation and to highlight best practice and showcase new products and ideas.”
Alongside Yale and Ehaus in the best website category are Canongate.tv, QuercusBooks.co.uk, LonelyPlanet.com and Vintage-books.co.uk. Other categories for the awards include Best adult app, Best children's app, Best technology innovation and there will be a further award for Most inspiring digital publishing person.
Jamie Forrest, Online Marketing and Website Assistant at Yale University Press says, “This is very exciting for us. I mentioned Ehaus’ hard work in the award application so let’s keep our fingers crossed. There are some big names in the shortlist. It’s fantastic to be up there with them!”
The awards will run biannually and all category winners will go through to compete for the Digital Innovation award at The Bookseller's Industry Awards in May.
