The International News Media Association (INMA) today announced 333 finalists in the 2022 INMA Global Media Awards, with a prominent theme among entries being how to capture audiences and keep them close to the brand.

While pandemic coverage was a consistent topic again this year, other topics dominating entries included health, climate change, and reaching out to Millennials via concerts, competitions, awards, tech, music, and parenting.

Bennett, Coleman & Co. (BCCL), Russmedia, HT Media, Media 24, and Schibsted generated the most finalist nominations. Leading the finalist list are entries from India (60), United States (31), Austria (30), New Zealand (23), United Kingdom (23), Norway (22), Germany (19), and Australia (17).

First-place winners, regional winners, and the global ‘Best In Show’ will be unveiled on 9 June in a virtual announcement.

Judging was held in February with 50 media experts from 24 countries and was focused across 20 categories, including news brands, media platforms, subscriptions, advertising, data and insights, product, and newsrooms.

The 854 entries in this year’s Global Media Awards competition are live on in the best practices archive. Finalists may be viewed publicly until May 1, while all other entries are reserved exclusively for INMA members. INMA has more than 7,200 ‘best practices’ from the past decade of Global Media Awards competitions, sortable to finalists and winners, category, year, and country.

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
