INMA Awards 2013 First Place Recipients Announced, Rewarding Excellence In Media Marketing


(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NEW YORK , April 30 -- The International Newsmedia Marketing Association issued the following news release: First place recipients in the INMA Awards 2013 competition, signifying the world's best marketing campaigns produced by media companies, were announced tonight in New York, capping the International News Media Association (INMA) World Congress.



The awards were presented by incoming INMA President Yasmin Namini, senior vice president/chief consumer officer of The New York Times, at the conclusion of the 83rd Annual INMA World Congress. More than 300 media executives from around the world were on hand at the awards dinner held at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.

The prestigious "Best in Show" award, signifying the top campaign in the INMA Awards 2013 competition, went to the Hindustan Times in India for "You Read, They Learn," a community service campaign that helped provide underprivileged children with an education. The campaign drove salience for the initiative among readers and non-readers, built on the Hindustan Times brand, and was differentiating and impactful. Judges lauded the campaign for its powerful message and strong imagery.


Verdens Gang (VG) in Norway captured second place for the campaign "Relaunch VG Helg," an advertising sales and retention campaign. Third place went to El Espectador in Colombia for its campaign "Bibo, a Commitment For a Better Life," also a public relations and community service campaign.

In total, 30 first place awards across three audience groups were presented to 20 news companies for marketing excellence designed to grow audience, advertising, and brand across platforms.

Four companies won multiple first-place awards: Brazil's Diario do Para won five awards, while Colombia's El Espectador and Hong Kong's South China Morning Morning Post won three awards each. Norway's VG and the United States' Springfield News Leader won two awards each.

The 78-year-old INMA Awards competition garnered more than 500 entries from nearly 150 market-leading news media companies in 30 countries.

"What we saw in this year's winning entries were multi-media news brands using many platforms to convey messages of vitality," said Earl J. Wilkinson, executive director and CEO of INMA. "Communicating the benefits and values of a news brand stretched across a print newspaper, a Web site, tablet apps, and mobile site is tricky business. And these winning campaigns pulled it off." The competition was judged by a global panel of 21 executives in the media and advertising communities from 14 countries: Belgium, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Germany, India, Pakistan, Peru, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and United States. Judging was based on concept, creativity, copy, design, production, effectiveness, and results.
