Carla Buzasi, Editor-in-Chief of The Huffington Post UK, has scooped the top individual award -- Media Innovator of the Year -- at the British Media Awards, recognizing innovation and excellence across the British media industry.


The judges deemed that Carla and The Huffington Post UK showcased a mixture of old-fashioned and modern editing, "incorporating original reporting and comments with a chorus of contributions from the audience in real-time." The Huffington Post UK was also highly commended in the 'Social Media and Marketing Innovation' and 'Digital Media Innovator of the Year' categories.


"I'm very proud that, just nine months after launch, HuffPost UK is being recognized in this way. The team works tirelessly to ensure we're creating the very best original reports, news stories and blogs, and it's great that the rest of the British media scene are sitting up and taking notice," Carla said.


Last November, The Huffington Post UK was honored by the Lovie Awards with a Gold Award in the news category.
