APC Announces Winners of the Asian Publishing Awards in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Dec 01, 2012 (ACN Newswire via COMTEX) -- Eighteen winners and 38 excellence awardees from eighteen categories were awarded during the sixth Asian Publishing Awards (APA) on November 30, 2012. The event was held as part of the Asian Publishing Convention (APC) held at Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur on November 30 & December 1, 2012 attended by 152 delegates from 14 countries.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was also given to Dato' Hussamuddin bin Hj Yaacub, Chairman and CEO of Karangkraf Sdn Bhd. He has built the biggest Bahasa language book and magazine publishing force in Malaysia over 30 years.

There are three commendable factors that set Dato Hussamuddin apart from other businessmen who have made it big in Malaysia: he runs his publications on firm values, believes in giving back to society and he is uncompromising on corrupt practices.

In giving this Lifetime Achievement Award, the organizers, sponsors and partners are greatly honored to present its Lifetime Achievement for 2012 to this outstanding son of Malaysia who should be an example to this country and every other Asian society.

The Asian Publishing Awards, presented by Asendia, Adobe, Woodwing and Magzter, is Asia's premier Awards program that recognizes best publishing practices in Asia.
