Comment   Email   Print

Damian Eales, who heads News Corp Australia's publishing division could be very busy congratulating colleagues and members of his own team when the INMA Global Media Awards are handed out in May.

News Corp businesses - most of them in Australia - head the list of finalists in the 2019 competition with 17 nominated entries. The Wall Street Journal and UK's Times/Sunday Times - also part of the global News Corp - are also in the shortlist. Eales is set to become president of INMA for 2019-2021, succeeding Eduardo Garces Lopez, who will be on stage for the awards.

Geographically, it was India's 39 finalist nominations which topped INMA's list, announced today. Among them, Jagran scored 11, HT Media eight and Bennett Coleman & Company seven.

Australian entrants scored 17 nominations, with the US 37 and Norway 22 of the 194 finalists, whose entries had been among 664 from 165 news media companies in 34 countries, judged last month by an international panel of 46 judges from 15 countries.

The competition recognises top campaigns to grow audience, revenue, and brand, with entries coming from newspaper, magazine, digital, TV and radio media.

The 40 first-place winners will be announced on May 17 at the Global Media Awards Dinner at the Edison Ballroom in New York on May 17, as part of the 89th Annual World Congress of News Media. Regional winners and the global 'best in show' also will be announced then.

INMA executive director and chief executive Earl Wilkinson says this year's finalists stand out for their expanded willingness to use digital platforms to grow their core business and a "heart-and-soul approach" to their news brands to help solve community challenges.

"This is an extremely creative class of INMA finalists, and it is an honour to make it to this round of judging."

Entries are now live in INMA's the 'best practices' archive, with 2019 finalists available publicly.
