Best in Print Award for Mathrubhumi edition at the Asian Media Awards 2017

The print division of Kerala’s formidable Mathrubhumi Group has been conferred the Best in Print award (above 50,000 copies circulation) at the 16th Asian Media Awards 2017, edging out competition from major media organisations across the Asia-Pacific, South Asia, and the Middle East.

The Bronze was presented to Mathrubhumi’s Kollam edition at the Publish Asia 2017 gala dinner hosted by the World Association of Newspapers and News publishers (WAN IFRA) in Kuala Lumpur. Prathap Chandran, Sr Engineer, Kollam-Mathrubhumi, received the award from Manfred Werfel, Deputy CEO, Wan-Ifra and Patrick Daniel, Asia Pacific Chairman, World Editors Forum, Wan-Ifra. The 16th edition of the awards received over 400 entries this year, and was judged by a panel of 25 international media executives.

MV Shreyams Kumar, Director, Mathrubhumi Group said, “This is indeed a great recognition for the 94-year-old Malayalee media house in the forefront of all progressive movements in Kerala. We are glad that our newspaper shares an exclusive membership with The International Newspaper Color Quality Club (INCQC). We shall continue practising high quality standard of printing, equipped with latest technology in the future to come.”

The Asian Best in Print award is presented to a newspaper deserving recognition for excellence in standardised printing. It recognises the ability of a newspaper to consistently print a high quality product adhering to international standards.

The Asian Media Awards are organised by the World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (Wan-Ifra), a non-profit organisation which represents over 18,000 news publishers in 120 countries.

Wan-Ifra’s 16th Asian Media Awards aim to promote the highest publishing standards in the fields of newspaper and magazine design, infographics, printing, editorial content, marketing, community service, and photojournalism.
