Asian Digital Media Awards 2020

Asian Digital Media Awards 2020

01 Jun 2020 hasta 09 Aug 2020
Registration Dates












These awards, presented by WAN-IFRA, the World Association of News Publishers, recognise Asian publishers who have delivered unique and original digital media projects in the last 12 months. From new approaches to digital subscriptions, to impactful native advertising campaigns - projects that inspire us all.

To recognise smaller media companies producing great work, the Asian Digital Media Awards has a new special award for news media companies with an annual revenue of less than US$10 million. This award replaces the Bronze award which was given out previously.

Entries from smaller media companies which receive the highest and second highest scores will continue to win the Gold or Silver awards in their respective categories. Should they not fall within the top two spots, the smaller media company with the highest score will win the special award in its category. 


Submission for the 2020 Awards took place from 1 June 2020 to 30 July 2020. Thank you to all who participated! Check out the winners HERE!
