News Corp Australia’s The Australian has taken the Daily Newspaper of the Year award while Fairfax Media’s Australian Financial Review won the Digital News Site of the Year at the annual PANPAs. The Print Centre of the Year was Fairfax’s Canberra Print Centre.

The 2017 Newspaper of the Year Awards, known as the PANPAs, recognise excellence in news media publishing in print and online, photography, environmental initiatives and production.  This year’s awards, sponsored by Norske Skog, attracted a higher number of entries than previous years from publishers across Australia, New Zealand, the South Pacific and Asia. More than 300 people attended the awards ceremony, which was hosted by The Chaser’s Craig Reucassel and Andrew Hansen at the conclusion of the INFORM News Media Summit at the International Convention Centre in Sydney.

“I would like to congratulate all this year’s Newspaper of the Year award winners and acknowledge the incredibly high standard of the region’s print and digital news content, as well as photography, design and technical excellence,” said NewsMediaWorks CEO, Peter Miller. “Our news media brands can stand tall as among the best in the world and this year’s award winners again showed outstanding excellence in each category.”
