The Irrawaddy Receives Asia Publishing Award
15 July 2013
In July 2013, the “The Irrawaddy Magazine” was awarded an Excellence Award at the Asia Publishing Awards in the Philippines. The Irrawaddy was chosen out of 171 entries from 8 countries in Asia as a winner of the Excellence Award under the Content Development Category: Expressing ‘editorial personality’ across channels. This is a significant achievement and recognizes the unique style and content of The Irrawaddy as an independent, hard-hitting, media publication — as well as our land-mark success of returning to publish in Burma after 20 years of forced exile.
