Emphasis Media Won Silver for CNN Traveller at the Custom Publishing Council’s Pearl Awards


HONG KONG, 01 December 2009 – Emphasis Media, a company of PubliGroupe, won silver for CNN Traveller at the recent Custom Publishing Council’s (CPC) sixth annual Pearl Awards in New York in the category “Best Use of Photography – Design”.

Honouring the best in design, editorial and strategic initiatives for B2B and consumer custom publications, this year’s Pearl Awards entries represented 57 companies in 8 countries and the winning publications reflect a wide range of clients from different industries.

According to Lori Rosen, executive director of CPC, great content across different platforms is what all the winners have in common. She added that as the definition of custom publishing continues to evolve, so do custom content creators on behalf of their clients and this year’s entries reflect that growth and innovation.

“The Winds of Change” article published in the March – April 2009 issue of CNN Traveller received silver recognition in design for the Best Use of Photography category. The story provided readers with an insight into North Korea and its people, supported by engaging and gripping photography.

“The team here is delighted to have received this award. At CNN Traveller we look to showcase the best in travel and reportage photography from around the world and to receive this accolade from the Pearl Awards’ judges is very satisfying indeed and testament to the work that has gone into making the publication even better in 2009,” remarked Dan Hayes, Editor of CNN Traveller.

Published for the renowned global news organisation CNN International, CNN Traveller is widely read by affluent business and high-end leisure travellers and distributed throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific. Readers of the magazine are extremely positive about the diversity of articles, photography and design, all which make the publication a true success.
