INMA Global Media Awards open for entries

Last date for entries – 24 January 2020


The INMA Global Media Awards competition rewards excellence in growing the audience, revenue and brand of news media companies. INMA has rewarded excellence in news media since 1937.

This year, the association will reward outstanding work in developing news brands, platform excellence, audience development, advertising sales and innovation across 15 categories.

For 2020, INMA has added seven new categories rewarding corporate culture, acquiring and retaining talent, digital subscriptions, audio, digital products, print and data analytics.

The INMA Global Media Awards competition is now open for entries – with a deadline of 24 January 2020. The shortlisted campaign and company will be called forward to receive a Global Media Award at the closing dinner of the INMA World Congress of News Media on 28 April 2020 at the Opera Ballroom in Paris.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
