The luxury travel and lifestyle publication, DestinAsian, picked up the top honour, for 'Excellence in Magazines', at the sixth annual Society of Publishers in Asia awards. The magazine, which is three years old, brings to the forefront some of the most idyllic places to travel around Asia. And it seems that it is getting the recognition it deserves from those that matter. Not only did it take home the top honour, it also won two awards for 'Excellence in Feature Writing' and one for 'Excellence in Photography'. There were a record number of entries this year - from 278 publications across the region. Judging was conducted by a panel of 90 - respected journalists, editors and academics from top national and regional media and universities based in Asia.
