Roughguides.com has been nominated for two digital publishing awards, eight months after it re-launched.

The site – which has seen its traffic grow 300% in the last year – is up for both a Lovie Award in the Travel / Tourism Websites category and a FutureBook Innovation Award under the Best Publisher Website category.

It’s fantastic news and a testament to all the hard work that the team have put into the site across departments, from editorial, development, design and marketing.

Thanks to all of you readers, too, for helping create a lively forum for travel fans and Rough Guides readers.

Fingers crossed!
