Australia’s newspaper media publishers have picked up 11 International News Media Association (INMA) Awards, which were announced at the INMA World Congress in New York.

The global INMA Awards are the industry’s premier barometer for initiatives to grow audience, revenue and brands of news media companies. Overall, 30 first place awards in 15 categories across two audience groups were presented to 26 media companies.

The awards were announced at the Edison Ballroom at New York’s Times Square before an audience of 300 global media executives. This year’s awards attracted 578 entries from 38 countries.

The awards were judged by an international jury of 33 executives from 15 countries representing the worlds of media and marketing and creativity.

Former Fairfax Media executive Robert Whitehead was also honoured at the INMA Awards for lifetime career achievement and contribution to INMA, presented with the Silver Shovel Award. Whitehead was also a former president of the Pacific Area Newspaper Publishers Association (PANPA) and a board member of The Newspaper Works.

In addition, seven companies were recognised for excellence in the second annual INMA Global Innovation Awards. Fairfax Media won Best in Asia Pacific, while News Corp’s social media curation company, Storyful, took out first place for the global innovation award.
