Singapore, 1 Aug 2012 – Singapore Nautilus, a magazine published by SPH Magazines Pte Ltd (“SPH Magazines”) on behalf of Singapore Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), clinched two gold awards at the recent 2012 Tabbie Awards. The awards, a leading international competition for trade, association and business publications, received nearly 500 entries this year.
Singapore Nautilus bagged a Gold Award in the Best Single Issue category. Judges praised the magazine for its ‘use of a single graphic concept to convey a heavy subject matter in a very readable, interesting way’. They also commented: “Singapore Nautilus is not what you’d expect from a maritime magazine. Its look is crisp, fresh and engaging to the reader. Its articles are deep and thought-provoking and are highly useful and targeted to its audience. From cover to cover, Singapore Nautilus is a treasure to read and look at.”
The magazine also received a Gold Award for Feature Design, winning praise from the judging panel for its ‘variety of elements, colour and font choices’ and a ‘well designed layout’.
This is the second time Singapore Nautilus has been honoured at the Tabbie Awards. Last year, it clinched a Gold and two Honourable Mentions. More recently, the magazine garnered recognition in the 2012 APEX Awards with an Award of Excellence in Illustration and Typography.
Mr Dennis Pua, Managing Director, SPH Magazines, said: “It’s wonderful recognition for the team. These awards are a testament to the international quality of our work and we will continue to deliver engaging publications that meet the business objectives of our clients.”
