Heathrow Terminal 5
A digital world clock and a sculpture from the terminal were nominated

Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 has been shortlisted for a prestigious design award in two categories.

A wall-based digital world clock and a sculpture in the airport were nominated for the Brit Insurance Design Awards.

London's St Pancras international train station, from where Eurostar services run, also made it to the shortlist in the transport category.

A curved bridge over the River Aire in Castleford, West Yorkshire, is in the running for the architecture prize.

British graphics artist Daniel Eatock, who designed the Big Brother logo, has been shortlisted in the graphics category.

About 100 designs are in the running for awards which covers seven categories - architecture, fashion, furniture, graphics, interactive, product and transport.

The winners in each category will be announced at the end of February and the final winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner on 18 March.

The Design Museum of London will open an exhibition on Thursday where all the shortlisted pieces will be showcased until 14 June.
