The Phnom Penh Post has been named as a finalist for four Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) Awards, which honour editorial excellence in both traditional and new media in Asia.

An article by reporters Kong Meta and Andrew Nachemson about the effects of the chemical warfare waged by the United States on Cambodia’s Svay Rieng province four decades ago is a finalist for the Excellence in Human Rights Reporting Award.

Alessandro Marazzi Sassoon and Kong Meta’s A ‘crime’ against local history: Cambodia’s lost manuscripts, which delved into the black market in ancient Cambodian manuscripts, was nominated in the Excellence in Arts and Culture Reporting category.

Ben Sokhean, Mech Dara and Ananth Baliga’s same-day coverage of the Supreme Court decision to dissolve the Cambodia National Rescue Party is an Excellence in Reporting Breaking News finalist.

Shaun Turton, Niem Chheng and Mech Dara’s coverage of fears the Cambodian government were registering soldiers as voters in communes where they did not live, earned a nomination for the prestigious Scoop Award.
