The Newspaper Works is excited to announce the new 2014 Newspaper of the Year Awards. With a sharp focus on industry diversity and readership levels, categories will no longer be segmented by circulation (copy sales) but readership, as defined by emma and The Newspaper Works for members around the Asia-Pacific. These segmentations will be:

  1. National/Metropolitan/Standalone Digital /Company (multi-title)
  2. Regional
  3. Community

Categories have also been overhauled with new and refined areas in Print and Digital including Weekend Paper of the Year as well as a new category honouring the Young Rural Journalist of the Year. In an industry steeped in so much tradition, change is never easy . . . but it is essential.
