By HoldtheFrontPage staff

A ground-breaking educational website produced by Northcliffe Newspapers' Internet division has been nominated for another prestigious award.

Headline History, has been nominated for a Bafta Interactive Award.

The project has been nominated in the Children's Learning category and is up against entries from the BBC and Channel 4.

The winners will be announced at the Café Royal, London on Wednesday, March 2.

The Interactive Award was established by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts seven years ago to reward "achievement in innovation and creativity in the new media industries."

Julian Boardman, Headline HistoryÂ?s deputy project editor, said: "For Headline History to be nominated for a Bafta is a huge honour and guarantees enormous exposure for both the project and NEP." was devised and created by NEP and commissioned and funded by the Government's Culture Online initiative - part of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The site aims to inspire seven to 11-year-olds to learn about history and literacy through the medium of virtual, online, historical newspapers.

Already an awards success, the website won three accolades this year at the Newspaper Society Digital Media Awards, scooping prizes for Best Web Design, Best Digital Media Development and Best Promotion of an Online Service.
