If you are new in the field, this event is the equivalent of Olympics of news, Media from all across the globe picks and send entries of the best of the year (2018 in this case) and an international jury dig-in for a few days seen the best of the best

This year result was very good for the South China Morning Post ranking as 4th globally because a few years ago we didn’t do anything special for online, here is a little more of background here if you like. Below the table of medals for the 40th edition:
