Singapore Business Review bags Business/Professional Media of the Year Award at the MPAS Awards 2018

Its sister publication Asian Banking & Finance landed the gold award for the business/professional media of the year in the Asia Pacific Publishing Awards.

Singapore Business Review clinched the Gold award for the Business/Professional Media of the Year (Print) at the 2018 Media Publishers Association (MPAS) Awards. The annual MPAS Awards lauded the best practices and top talents within Singapore’s magazine publishing industry for 2018.

The awards were judged by a panel of six who are practitioners and veterans from the creative sector, public relations and media publishing. The panel also includes fresh faces like James Lim, creative director of Hakuhodo, Dean Carroll, publisher of Mumbrella Asia, James Hewes, president and CEO of FIPP and David Tay, former president of Photographic Society. Lynda Williams, managing director of Vim & Vigour, was one of the only two judges retained from last year’s panel, together with Marina Mathews, managing director of Chrysler Communications.

Singapore Business Review magazine targets Singapore’s business elite through reporting the region’s top issues. It is run by Charlton Media Group.

"The Singapore Business Review remains the highest audited circulating publication in Singapore, with 22,265 print copies each issue," said Timothy Charlton, publisher and editor-in-chief of Singapore Business Review. "Our online audience continues to grow on with an average of 230,000 unique monthly audience, and over two million unique audience readership annually."

Other publications from the group also reaped recognitions from the awards night. For the Asia Pacific Publishing (APPA) Awards, Asian Banking & Finance clinched the gold award for the Business/Professional Media of the Year whilst Insurance Asia bagged the silver award for the Special Interest Media of the Year. Meanwhile, Asian Power received the Gold award for Trade Media of the Year.

“Our industry is facing its share of disruption, but it’s also loaded with creativity, boldness, and a love of hard work that is helping many businesses to thrive in difficult times,” MPAS executive director Chrystal Wong said. “It’s heartening to know that so many media members of the association look forward to our annual awards gala dinner.”

The APPA Awards and MPAS Awards 2018 was held in One Farrer Hotel Grand Ballroom on 8 November. Over 35 publishing firms and 180 stakeholders graced the ceremony.
