S'pore magazines clinch honours

THREE Singapore magazines - SilverKris, Singapore Health and The Johnnie Walker House Edit - have emerged from nearly 1,900 competing entries from around the world to win honours at the Apex Awards 2015.

SilverKris, Singapore Health and The Johnnie Walker House Edit Vol 2 were recognised at the Apex Awards 2015. The magazines were picked from some 1,900 entries from around the world.

The three custom-published titles from SPH Magazines were winners at the US-based Apex Awards, which recognise excellence in publishing by professional communicators, Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) said yesterday.

The September 2014 issue of SilverKris, the monthly inflight travel magazine of Singapore Airlines, won the Grand Award in the design and layout category under magazines, journals and tabloids.

In the same section, The Johnnie Walker House Edit Vol 2 was singled out by the judges for an Award of Excellence in the writing category.

SilverKris, Singapore Health and The Johnnie Walker House Edit Vol 2 were recognised at the Apex Awards 2015. The magazines were picked from some 1,900 entries from around the world.

The winning issue of the quarterly magazine focused on the concept of creation, with articles and essays that celebrate original ideas and the people who bring them to life.

Singapore Health also received an Award of Excellence for its November/December 2014 issue under the custom-published category.

The bi-monthly newspaper highlights medical breakthroughs and issues, and "translates" them into layman-friendly terms and compelling case studies.
