The Independent has received 12 nominations for the prestigious British Press Awards.

Our successful campaign against bank charges, which has so far resulted in billions of pounds being repaid to aggrieved customers, has been shortlisted in two categories – the Cudlipp Award, which is awarded to teams of journalists and recognises excellence in popular journalism, and Campaign of the Year.

Two Independent writers, Johann Hari and Matthew Norman, are nominated as Columnist of the Year, while James Lawton is among the nominees for Sports Journalist of the Year. Deborah Ross is shortlisted for Interviewer of the Year.

The newspaper's reporting is also recognised, with Kim Sengupta nominated for Foreign Reporter of the Year and Jerome Taylor for Young Journalist of the Year.

Anthony Quinn is shortlisted for Critic of the Year and Jeremy Warner for Business and Finance Journalist. The other nominees are Dave Brown (cartoonist) and David Ashdown (sports photographer).

The Independent On Sunday received two nominations: Cole Moreton in the interviewer category and 'The New Review' for Supplement of the Year.
