Here I am receiving the AOP Award for Digital Editorial Individual of the Year from Russell Kane

I had the great honour of winning the digital journalist of the year award at the Association of Online Publishers 2011 Awards ceremony. Essentially the Oscars of the digital journalism world, it was a wonderful night for me and The Telegraph Media Group, which walked away with a total of four awards.

Celebrations and lots of champagne all round…

Here’s what the judges said about me:

“Emma has made The Telegraph’s Technology channel a must-read destination for breaking news, and has helped shift coverage from feature-led to breaking news-led, ensuring the beat became a priority for the newsroom.  Through her efforts, The Telegraph has shifted from being known as a leader at implementing technology, to an editorial authority on the topic.

“Emma has achieved high profile in the sector, delivering strong growth for the Telegraph Tech brand in both readership and commercial terms in a highly competitive market.”
