Honoring excellence in media and communications



The AMIC Asia Communication Award recognizes outstanding achievement in research, education, institution building, and excellence in journalism and other media endeavors. Individuals of all nationalities are eligible for this award, which is given yearly at the AMIC annual meeting at the discretion of the AMIC board of directors.



The AMIC Asia Communication Award recognizes lasting contributions under the following categories:


§Research—contributions to the body of media research, such as the launching and completion of major research projects or the development of enduring theoretical approaches to media and communications.

§Education—lasting contributions in nurturing successive generations of media, communications, or journalism students and scholars.

§Institution building—establishment of key communications and media programs, research centers, or academic journals.

§Excellence in journalism, whether online or in print—sustained contributions to public service and the highest journalistic principles.

§Other media and communication contributions—from time to time the board may present the AMIC Communication Award to media practitioners for outstanding commitment and excellence in their field of endeavor.



An individual will be honored based on the impact that his or her work has had on Asian communications and media. The impact of the contribution can be focused on a single country within Asia, on a region within Asia, or on the whole of Asia. While the awardees need not be Asian, preference is accorded to regional actors.



Nominations for the AMIC Asia Communication Award are accepted from any member in good standing with the association. Nominations, along with supporting documentation, are received from September 1st through December 31st of each year and should be addressed to the Secretary General of the Association, Dr. Sundeep R. Muppidi.
