The annual awards attract the biggest names in online journalism and other global brands nominated include CNN, USA Today, the Huffington Post and Al Jazeera.
Organisers said the awards “identify the cleverest, boldest and most original purveyors of news and views from around the world and reward the best in online news and journalism.”
The Enquirer has made the shortlist for the new category of “Best Business/Finance News Site”.
Enquirer editor Aaron Morby said: “It is great to be nominated for awards which attract only the very best in the industry.
“We have grown rapidly in the last three years and now enjoy more than one million page views a month with 25,000 subscribers to our daily newsletter.”
Online Media Awards Founder Gordon Young said: “Online Media Awards have very quickly become established among the world’s top online media owners and editors as an important benchmark for the work that they are doing to build strong online brands.
“What is also encouraging to see is that not only the major media brands are winning these awards, but smaller brands are also proving that when it comes to great online journalism it is not always who has the deepest pockets that wins.”
