SENATUS has won the title of "No.1 Magazine Website in Asia" once again at the 2013 Asian Digital Media Awards (ADMAs) held on 13 November, in 1 of the 2 most hotly-contested and coveted accolades at the regional media event, alongside the Best Newspaper Website category.
The ADMAs were ajudged by a panel of 29 international jury members comprising of the most established global media companies including Le Soir (Belgium), Kurier (Austria), AIM (USA), Telegraaf (Netherlands), El Siglo de Torreon (Mexico), Dagbladet (Denmark), Polaris Media (Australia), Telegraph Media Group (UK), Society of News Design (USA), Irish Times (UK), Ringier (Switzerland), Media 24 (South Africa), Dogan (Turkey), Verdens Gang (Norway), and Asahi Shimbun (Japan).
SENATUS previously won Gold in 2010 and Silver in 2012 but this year's victory was particularly gratifying given the much larger quantity of submissions by media conglomerates in the region which have made significant investments in digital media.
We have focused on improving the quality of our editorial coverage as well as the site's user interface & layout over the last 12 months.
"The accolades bestowed upon us by our esteemed peers in the business is a ringing endorsement of our commitment towards building a platform of excellence," added Kien Lee, Managing Director of SENATUS.
