New Delhi, June 14 (UNI) A Hong Kong-based not-for-profit organisation has named Reuters as the winner of the Society of Publishers in Asia Award for Public Service Journalism for its reporting on the Rohingya crisis.
The announcement was made on Wednesday evening in Hong Kong, China, according to a press statement from SOPA, founded in 1982, to champion freedom of the press, promote excellence in journalism and endorse best practices for all local and regional publishing platforms in the Asia-Pacific region.
One of the journalists in the winning team is currently being detained in Myanmar as a result of his work covering the Rohingya crisis.

Awards for Excellence in Business Reporting across the three award categories -- global, regional and local media -- went to the Financial Times ("Unravelling the mystery of China's HNA"), Frontier Myanmar ("Funny money") and Caixin Global '(A Maze of Capital Leads to Anbang's Aggressive Expansion).'

These awards were among the 95 SOPA honours for Editorial Excellence across 17 categories announced at the event. This year, SOPA saw the highest number of entries since the launch of the awards in 1999, with more than 850 English- and Chinese-language submissions by international, regional and local media in the region.
