Excellence in news media publishing was recognised on Friday night at the 2016 PANPA Newspaper of the Year Awards in Sydney.

Held at Ivy to conclude the annual NewsMediaWorks Future Forum, more than 400 guests attended the awards, which recognise excellence in print and digital publishing, photography, environmental initiatives and print and production.

The awards attracted entries from national, metropolitan, regional, rural and community news media brands in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands and Asia, and place an emphasis on the quality of journalism, cross platform execution, design and the ability to engage audiences across multiple platforms.

NewsMediaWorks CEO Mark Hollands said Australia’s news media brands are among the best in the world and this year’s award winners were no exception.

“Our judges overwhelmingly remarked on the high quality of influential journalism and the diversity of entertaining, provocative and often courageous ways in which news media is engaging audiences,” he said.

“The PANPAs continue to be the pre-eminent awards in the region’s news media industry.”
