Two journalists at the Norwich Evening News and Eastern Daily Press have been shortlisted for a national award after running a mental health campaign.
David Powles, who is now the editor of the Evening News, and Nicholas Carding, health correspondent for both papers, are joint finalists in the Journalist of the Year category at the Mind Mental Health Awards.
The awards celebrate the best of mental health journalism.
Mr Powles and Mr Carding both worked on the EDP's Mental Health Watch campaign, which highlights the issues within mental healthcare in this region as well as fighting to end the stigma associated with the conditions.
They face competition from reporters working at BBC News, BBC Radio 1, and Sky News.
