    A Jewish journalist has had her work commended by the judges of a prestigious media award.

    Emma Barnett, the digital media editor of the Daily Telegraph, was named the "digital editorial individual 2011" at the Association of Online Publishers (AOP) awards ceremony in London last week.

    The Manchester-born writer, who studied at Nottingham University and gained an MA at Cardiff University, was presented with the award by comedian Russell Kane.

    The award came just hours after Ms Barnett, 26, was one of the first people in Britain to hold the torch for the 2012 London Olympics during a Sky news programme. She wrote on Twitter that it was "really light actually".

    The AOP judges praised Ms Barnett for having achieved a high profile in her area in the short time since she began working at The Telegraph.

    They said she had delivered "strong growth for the Telegraph Tech brand in both readership and commercial terms in a highly competitive market".
