MIMS has clinched three awards, including the Front Cover of the Year (Trade) and the Designer of the Year, at the Media Publishers Association Singapore (MPAS) Awards 2018 held recently at One Farrer Hotel.
MIMS Doctor bagged two wins – gold and bronze, respectively for the Front Cover of the Year (Trade), for its July 2018 and February 2018 issues. MIMS Doctor designer Peggy Tio clinched the Designer of the Year award.
The awards ceremony was attended by over 35 publishing companies and 180 industry stakeholders. A panel of six judges hand-picked the winners. Now on its 12th year, MPAS Awards recognizes local publications and individuals for their remarkable contribution in pushing for relevant content and campaigns and embracing innovation in the media industry.
“This has been a unique opportunity for MIMS, particularly for MIMS Doctor, to punch above its weight and lock our position as one of the most trusted sources of healthcare information in Asia,” said MIMS CEO Yasunobu Sakai. “We are thankful for the awards and we draw strength from the recognition as we continuously reinvent ourselves and work towards an engaging, cohesive, and progressive community of doctors, patients, and healthcare partners.”
