INMA Global Media Awards

Rewarding excellence in engaging and funding news brands and the outstanding journalism they produce

Journalism, by itself, won’t change the world.

To have influence and impact, resonating content requires a great user experience, packaging, funding mechanisms, clever creative execution, an intimate knowledge of customers.

Yet as the foundation for news media’s value proposition, how can we reward the outstanding work of making journalism financially sustainable for a world that needs truth and trust?

Since 1937, the INMA Global Media Awards has rewarded business practices that sustain news media and journalism. The years and categories change, but the mission remains the same.

Across 20 categories, seven genres, and two audience segments, INMA aims to tell a story of creativity and aspiration for the unsung heroes behind news media’s renaissance in a complicated Digital Age.

Journalism matters. And the business decisions to bolster that journalism matter, too.

Reward excellence. Reach for something bigger. Benchmark your work. Enter your best work in sustaining news media in the 2024 INMA Global Media Awards competition.

For 2024, INMA will lean into the competition’s mission by focusing on:

Commerce and advertising
