LAUSANNE, January 7, 2021 - A total of 316 submissions from Asia have been sent to AIPS Sport Media Awards. India, Iran and China are the top three most represented countries.
The third edition of the AIPS Sport Media Awards amassed a record of 1871 submissions (in 34 different languages) coming from 129 different countries.

With all continents represented, this edition highlights the remarkable resilience and importance of sports journalism amid the coronavirus pandemic, touching on local and international stories that dominated headlines between October 2019 and November 2020.

The AIPS Sport Media Awards team would like to thank all participants for their interest in these difficult times. Certificates were sent to all participants a few weeks after the submissions deadline.

Below is the list of 209 Asian participants who sent in a total of 316 submissions to the 2020 AIPS Sport Media Awards.

Remember, each participant could present a maximum of two in the same or in two different categories. The same name will appear just one time if two submissions were made in the same category (names signalled with *), while it will appear twice if the author submitted in two different categories.
