News infographics clean sweep adds to SCMP's awards haul

South China Morning Post chief executive Gary Liu was kept busy at WAN-Ifra's Asian Media Awards last night, with a welcome speech and presentations to staffers who collected six of the awards.

The Hong Kong publisher scored a clean sweep in the newspaper infographics category, with the other wins coming for newspaper overall design (gold) and newspaper breaking news (silver and bronze).

Singapore media companies took the top three spots for best news photograph, with host Singapore Press Holdings clinching five trophies - for best news photography (gold and silver), newspaper overall design (bronze), feature photography (bronze) and sports photography (bronze).

Jagran Prakashan picked up four awards - two golds and two silvers - across the newspaper marketing and community service categories.

Presentations were made at the end of the first day of the Publish Asia conference, at a dinner at the Singapore Flyer ferris wheel overlooking Marina Bay.

This year's competition attracted 350 entries from 55 media companies in 16 countries all over Asia and the Middle East competing for excellence in editorial content, design, infographics, photography, printing quality, newspaper marketing and community service.
