We recognise and celebrate the best of digital media

WAN-IFRA’s Digital Media Awards Worldwide is the news media industry’s truly global digital media competition.

The 2020 winners came from the winners of our regional Digital Media Awards during this past year in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, North America and South Asia, which together provide news publishers with regular showcases for the best-practice innovation in digital publishing worldwide. The regional awards are evaluated by local juries and then later in the year, a different set of judges examines all the winners across the regions and selects the best of each category for the Digital Media Awards Worldwide.

2021 winners will be announced  at the virtual World News Media Congress 2021 during the session Innovations and Inspirations.
Join the session on Tuesday 30 December | 16:30 Germany · 23:30 Singapore · 10:30 NY
