Regional recognition: Post wins 4 more awards at the SOPAs

The Phnom Penh Post has brought home another four honours from the annual Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) awards in Hong Kong.

Continuing its fine form of past years, the Post edged out fierce competition from across the region on Wednesday night to clinch one top award and three honourable mentions in the English-language category for newspapers that circulate in primarily one or two countries.

The top award for Excellence in Investigative Reporting went to David Boyle for his story "Giving more than 100%", which judges said showed “in a black and white way just how prevalent voter fraud is, or could be, in Cambodia”.

For a collection of four news stories – involving more than 20 reporters and photographers – from last year’s national election, the Post received an honourable mention in the breaking news section. Honourable mentions were also received in the categories of digital news and environmental reporting.

The Post has now won more than 20 accolades in the past six years.
