The International News Media Association (INMA) announced finalists in the 2019 Global Media Awards competition, featuring top campaigns worldwide by news media companies to grow audience, revenue, and brand.


The 194 finalists rose to the top from this year’s 664 entries from 165 news media companies in 34 countries. Entrants included newspaper media, magazine media, digital media, television media, and radio media.


Entries were judged across 20 categories and two groups: global/national brands and regional/local brands. Those entries were judged in February by an international panel of 46 judges from 15 countries.


Leading the INMA shortlist is News Corp with 17 finalists across their titles internationally, followed by Schibsted with 16, Jagran with 11, Gannett/USA Today Network with 10, HT Media with eight, and Amedia, Bennett Coleman & Company Ltd., and Russmedia with seven each.


India had the highest numbers of finalists with 39, followed by the United States with 37, Norway with 22, and Australia with 17.


In May, 40 first-place winners will be announced from the finalists at the Global Media Awards Dinner at the Edison Ballroom in New York. The awards ceremony will be held on Friday, May 17, in conjunction with the 89th Annual World Congress of News Media. Regional winners and the global “Best in Show” also will be announced that evening.


“This year’s finalists stand out for two reasons: an expanded willingness to use digital platforms to grow their core business and a heart-and-soul approach to their news brands to help solve community challenges,” said Earl J. Wilkinson, executive director and CEO of INMA. “This is an extremely creative class of INMA finalists, and it is an honour to make it to this round of judging.”
