Finalists for the 2016 PANPA Newspaper of the Year Awards, that recognise excellence in news media publishing in print and online, photography, environmental initiatives and print and production, have been announced today.

This year’s coveted awards, known as the PANPAs, attracted entries from across the Asia-Pacific region.

The PANPAs will be presented at a gala dinner on September 2, hosted by The Chaser’s Chris Taylor and Craig Reucassel, at the conclusion of the NewsMediaWorks’ annual Future Forum news media conference to be held at The Ivy in Sydney.

The awards, sponsored by Norske Skog, are open to national, metropolitan, regional, rural and community news media brands in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Asia.

There are six categories for this year’s Newspaper of the Year awards:

  • Newspaper of the Year – sponsored by Norske Skog
  • Digital Destinations of the Year – sponsored by Newscycle
  • Photography of the Year – sponsored by Media Super
  • Technical Excellence Awards – sponsored by DIC
  • Hegarty Scholarship (for young news media executives) – sponsored by Media Super
  • Environment

The awards place an emphasis on the quality of journalism, cross platform execution, design and the ability to engage audiences across multiple platforms.

“Our news media brands are among the best in the world and the standard of entries for this year’s awards certainly reflected that,” NewsMediaWorks CEO, Mark Hollands, said.

“Our judging panel had the challenge of selecting the best of the best, which was no easy task. The PANPAs continue to be the pre-eminent awards in the region’s news media industry and I’d like to congratulate all the finalists.”
