Norwich Foodbank scoops digital accolade 

Norwich Foodbank has scooped a prestigious accolade in the first-ever Norfolk Christian Digital Communications Awards.

 
The Christian charity won the Best Use of Social Media class for its active Twitter and Facebook accounts at the ceremony held at Norwich Central Baptist Church on November 11.
 
The judges said of the entry: “Norwich Foodbank uses social media to reach new people, to share real stories and bring the vital community work they do to life.”
 
The trophy was presented in front of a 90-strong audience by the Bishop of Norwich, the Rt Rev Graham James. Runners-up were Aylsham Parish Church and the Twitter account of the Matthew Project.
 
Bishop Graham, who is the Church of England lead spokesman on media issues, said: “We are not here to praise digital media for its own sake. We are here to give thanks for this new medium in which the timeless message of Jesus Christ and his death and resurrection can be communicated in our own day. We have new opportunities and it is wonderful that in Norfolk these are being seized. We have much to celebrate tonight.”
 
Network Norfolk publisher, Keith Morris, said: “We staged the awards to help recognize, reward and encourage good Christian digital communications across Norfolk. The event also helped us to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Network Norwich & Norfolk website.
 
“We had 108 entries, from which our judges selected the best 36 as finalists. We then put them out to a public vote and the response was overwhelming, with more than 1,200 different people contributing over 2,400 votes.
 
“Our finalists all demonstrated innovation, creativity and inspiration in their digital offerings and are often created by people working away behind the scenes. The winners had something extra special that stood out to the public who voted for them.”
