More than 170 entries were assessed by media professionals who head some of the most renowned agencies in the region.

The New Straits Times (NST) was chosen as the Gold winner for NST-Permanis 5 Series (5D) Campaign, Permanis Sandilands – Wonda Premium Coffee, a ground breaking print-enabled campaign that enabled readers to literally experience the new product with all five senses – touch, sight, sound, smell and taste through the pages of a newspaper.
