The INMA Awards recognizes global excellence in the marketing and sales of media brands.
The awards garnered 560 entries from 149 media companies in 37 countries.
The first-place recipients will be announced on May 13 at the conclusion of the 84th Annual INMA World Congress in San Francisco.
Created in 1935, the 79-year-old INMA Awards competition captures the heartbeat of the global news industry's efforts to energize brands, stimulate audiences, innovate in product development and grow revenue.
"The clear theme from this year's entries centered on media companies explaining to their stakeholders — readers, advertisers, employees, shareholders — their differentiating value in the emerging multi-media landscape," said Earl J Wilkinson, Executive Director and CEO of INMA.
"To see that storyline play out among media companies in Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, South Asia, the Middle East, and Africa is fascinating to see in this year's entries," he said.
