The Sun wins Awards May 25, 2007

Posted by Tim in Malaysia, News.

From the Sun:

TheSun won two top regional awards for journalistic excellence at the Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) held here last night.

A first-time entrant for the prestigious award, theSun came out tops for Excellence in Opinion Writing and Excellence in Public Service Journalism against major and more established regional publications in the category for local newspapers or small magazines published in English.

The first award for Excellence in Opinion Writing was for a series of six commentaries written by assistant news editor Jacqueline Ann Surin, who writes a fortnightly column, Shape of a Pocket, published in the eXtra! section on Thursdays.

theSun’s second win of the night, for Public Service Journalism, was for “Low Cost Palace” by the Special Reporting and Investigations team of deputy editor R. Nadeswaran and deputy news editor Terence Fernandez.

The report was an expose on the lavish mansion constructed, without local authority permission, by Port Klang assemblyman and former Klang councillor Datuk Zakaria Md Deros.

Many kudos to the free paper – “free” in more ways than one.
