The New York Times received three awards of excellence and two honorable mentions from the Society of Publishers in Asia.

Michael Slackman, assistant managing editor for international, said:

“We all know what amazing work our colleagues in Asia produce day in and day out — often under the most difficult of circumstances — so it is great to see this well-deserved recognition. We are especially pleased to see that newer forms of journalism, now such a central part of our report, were among those cited.”

The awards were given to:

  • The award for excellence in journalism innovation went to Mika Gröndahl, Keith Collins and James Glanz.
  • Barbara Marcolini, Haley Willis, K. Rebecca Lai, Caroline Kim, Drew Jordan, Tiffany May and Austin Ramzy won for excellence in video reporting.
  • Excellence in information graphics went to Jin Wu, Anjali Singhvi and Jason Kao.
  • Ellen Barry won honorable mention for feature writing and the Times Chinese website won honorable mention in arts and cultural reporting.
  • The newspaper also had three finalists for excellence in journalistic innovation, for excellence in human rights reporting and for excellence in breaking news reporting.
