Singapore, 19 November 2015 – SPH Magazines’ Custom Publishing Unit recently clinched two Gold Awards at the Pearl Awards 2015 in New York City.
Organised annually by The Content Council, the Pearl Awards celebrate excellence in content marketing across print, digital and multi-channel platforms. Winners were picked from nearly 500 entries from leading brands, publishers, and agencies.
The June 2015 issue of SilverKris, the monthly inflight travel magazine of Singapore Airlines, clinched the Apex Award for Best Print Magazine (Editorial) – B2C. One of the highlights in this issue included ‘The Rhone Less Travelled’, a feature on Canada’s Okanagan Valley coming of age as a winemaking centre. The Singapore feature, ‘Let The Games Begin’ is a timely look at the Republic’s newest arena, the Sports Hub, host of the 2015 Asian Games.
For Best Print Magazine (Design) – B2C, The Johnnie Walker House Edit (TJWHE) Volume 3 garnered a Gold Award. The cover, with Maya Angelou’s quote “The epitome of sophistication is utter simplicity” set the tone for the elegant design choice of the issue.
TJWHE’s quarterly magazine is published for Diageo, a global leader in beverage alcohol. Since the launch of the first issue in August 2014, the publication has bagged various international awards for editorial and design excellence.
Dora Tay, Senior Editor of Custom Publishing, SPH Magazines, said: “We are delighted that SilverKris and TJWHE have been recognised by the Pearl Awards committee once again this year.
