There’s a fine distinction between WAN-Ifra’s Asian Media Awards and Digital Media Awards Asia: one recognises excellence in newspaper and magazine content, design and marketing, while the other focusses more on processes of digital news publishing.

Adding complication this year is the fact that – because of post-COVID realignment of events – both have been presented together.

WAN-Ifra says the Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post was biggest winner at this year’s presentation, winning four golds and six silvers – six at the AMA and four at DMAA.

Other big winners were Straits Times publisher SPH Media, which won two gold and four silver awards, and Beijing-based The World of Chinese, which took home five trophies in the small/medium publisher category (three gold and two silver), as well as a silver in the overall sports photography category.

Publishing in print and digital, TWOC (pictured) describes itself as “one of the most authoritative resources on contemporary China, renowned for its in-depth reporting, objectivity, and human-centred approach to Chinese society.”

Published as part of Commercial Press, it has won awards from the Society of Publishers in Asia as well as WAN-Ifra.

Indonesia digital publisher Kumparan also impressed, bagging five honours including gold in the overall breaking news article category. Kumparan won another three golds and a silver in the small/medium category, making a total of five awards.
