The Malaysian Property Press Awards 2018 – 10th December 2018
Kuala Lumpur, November 2018 – In its ninth year, The Malaysian Property Press Awards that began almost a decade ago, will be the highlight of the property industry this 10th December 2018.
This unique award ceremony for the property industry is an initiative by the strategic property content provider Emjay Communications, Property360Digest and The Malaysia Global Business Forum, recognizing the outstanding achievements of participants within the property industry via a unique format.
The Malaysian Property Press Awards has carved a niche for itself as the only property awards ceremony that is adjudicated exclusively by senior members of the press. It utilizes a comprehensive selection process that takes into account the positive market impact, performance, quality of products, caliber of services and the scope of corporate social responsibility activity that candidates have exhibited.
“These have been tracked and identified via our stories throughout the course of the year, and ultimately shortlisted for awards purposes. Importantly, we also take into account the positive feedback these various projects and corporations have received from our valued readers. This unique concept and outlook is born from the belief that a respected property print platform and her editorial team are often regarded as the voice of the people, and by extension represents the collective conscience of the nation. Through the printed stories and articles, these publications are able to raise important issues for discussion, highlight matters that have impacted our everyday lives and provide a crucial forum for the opinions and viewpoints of consumers”, said Gunaprasath Bupalan, chairman of The Malaysian Property Press Awards comiittee and Managing Director of Emjay Communications.
Society becomes all the richer when its people are exposed to issues that have depth of analysis and range of thought. Very often the people behind the thought-provoking issues and opinion pieces are the print editors, whose conscience for what is right and fair drives them to address issues that would otherwise be overlooked.
This year, The Malaysian Property Press Awards has taken a step closer to it’s goal to be an authentic property press awards by inviting superstars from various media and industries to sit on the valuation team as VIP judges.

This year, we have also partnered with PR Newswire as an official media partner, hence we believe that with the PR Newswire strength, we should have our ceremony featured amongst hundreds of their media anchors across South East Asia”, said Gunaprasath.
“This year, together with the wisdom of our other VIP judges, Zerin Properties and Emjay Communications, we have decided to take a step back and only award 10 of the most deserving projects, companies, services and individuals, making the awards more boutique, exclusive and inclusive”, said Nordin Abdullah.
