Investigative journalism website Exaro News has secured a nomination for this year's Orwell Prize for political writing for the first time.
The site's David Hencke, a former Guardian political correspondent, is one of 15 journalists who feature on the longlist for this year's prize, out of 167 entries.
Four Guardian journalists appear on the nominations list for the journalism prize. The judges are Paul Anderson, Robin Lustig and Michael Parks and the winner will be announced on 21 May and will receive a £3,000 prize.
Orwell Prize director Professor Jean Seaton said “As always, the judges for the journalism prize were immensely heartened by the sheer quality of journalism entered.
"By focusing on individual journalists, voices and stories became clearer. The judging process really disproves the gloom that surrounds contemporary journalism. The judges were also keen to recognise the journalistic innovation of Exaro News.”
