Celebrating Success: Winning the Gold Medal at the WAN-IFRA Asian Media Awards
I am thrilled to share some exciting news with all of you. I am proud to announce that my Cover Story on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), published in Nikkei Asia in August 2022, has received the Gold Medal in the Feature article category at the prestigious World Association of News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) Asian Media Awards!
This is a significant honor, and I am deeply grateful for the recognition. The WAN-IFRA Asian Media Awards are renowned for celebrating excellence in journalism across the Asian continent, and winning the Gold Medal in the Feature article category is a testament to the impact and quality of the CPEC story.
The $50 billion CPEC is not just a major infrastructure project; it represents a pivotal moment in the regional and global landscape. Its impact on the economy, geopolitics, and the lives of people in Pakistan and beyond cannot be overstated. Through this story, I aimed to shed light on the multifaceted dimensions of CPEC, providing insights into the challenges faced by Pakistan and China.
But the excitement doesn't end there. This award marks the second recognition for this particular piece. Earlier this year, the same story clinched the Best in Business Award, presented by the U.S. Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW). This dual recognition truly highlights the story's relevance, impact, and ability to resonate with a wide range of audiences, both at home and abroad.
I am incredibly grateful for these acknowledgments, and I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported my work and continues to do so. Your encouragement and support have been invaluable in driving me to pursue stories that matter, like the one on CPEC, and to share them with the world.
To all my readers and fellow journalists, I extend my sincere thanks for being a part of this journey. It is your engagement, enthusiasm, and curiosity that inspire me to explore and tell the stories that shape our world.
I look forward to continuing to provide you with high-quality, insightful journalism that goes beyond headlines and brings you closer to the issues that impact our lives. Once again, thank you for your support, and here's to more stories, more awards, and more shared moments.
Stay tuned for more exciting stories and updates. Your support makes it all possible!
