Oman's best-known newspaper has won the Judges' Special Recognition Award at the IFRA Asia Media Awards 2008 held at Macau, China. TheWeek won the award for the Best Newspaper Frontpage Design (circulation below 100,000 copies category) at the 2008 edition of the prestigious awards ceremony that is organised every year by IFRA Asia alongside its Publish Asia conference. Hundreds of newspapers and magazines from Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Middle East region have taken part in the Annual Asia Media Awards competition over the past seven editions of this contest. The award was received by Apex art editor Benoite Lopes and TheWeek deputy editor Benoy George Thomas on behalf of Apex Press and Publishing.
This year, a record number of more than 520 entries were received by IFRA from across the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East regions for 27 categories. The judges for the contest were Kris Visselman, editorial director, National Geographic Society (US); Mauricio Gutierrez, design director, The Detroit Free Press (US); Gabriella Schmidt, design consultant (Mexico); and Peter Ong, newspaper consultant (Australia) - all highly respected professionals in the global arena.
Says Saleh Zakwani, chairman and publisher of Apex Press and Publishing, This award is presented to entries whose overall design, originality and content have achieved the highest levels of excellence. It is a justification of our stand that there should be no compromise on quality."
Adds Mohana Prabhakar, CEO and managing editor, "The path ahead is full of challenges and this achievement is only a first step. We will need to continue raising the benchmark."
