Global honour for Times of Oman

Muscat: Celebrating the Sultanate’s rich heritage has again helped Times of Oman scoop more prestigious international journalism honours. At the Asian Media Awards, held by the World Association of Newspapers (WanIfra) in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday, Times of Oman picked up two awards.
The first was Gold in the category of Magazine Infographics for our lovingly detailed supplement ‘The Land of Frankincense’, produced specially for National Day in 2016.
In Newspaper Infographics Times of Oman was also honoured, picking up Silver in this fiercely contested category.
Scott Armstrong, Chief Executive Editor, said: “The graphics team can be rightly proud of their work, especially for the Land of Frankincense supplement that not only looked amazing but smelled good too, as the pages were infused with frankincense.
“It was a beautiful product, and worth remembering that the online version of this project also scooped Gold for Data Visualisation at the Middle East Digital Awards in Dubai just last month.”
