The Birmingham Mail Communities partnership, of which B31 blog is a part, is nominated for an award in the Innovation category at the Midlands Media Awards 2011.

As the trend increases for people to take their own very local news and move it to the internet, the scheme managed & edited by Paul Bradley from the Birmingham Mail, brings online and print news together. Local community news and information, including news feeds from many of Birmingham’s independent hyperlocal blogs, are published on the Mail’s Communities web page and key local stories of the week from around the city are summarised in the Your Communities supplement in Tuesday’s print edition.

The ceremony will be held at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground tonight, where Paul will be accompanied by Dave Harte ( and Karen Strunks (

We’ll be with them in spirit.

Minus the champers. *grumble*

Good luck to us all! :D

UPDATE: The Birmingham Mail Communities Partnership didn’t win the award – bad luck everybody and keep up the good work! ;)
