Despite not reaching the final shortlist of International Property Journalist of the Year at the Property Press Awards 2018, Andrew Batt, the Founder and Editor of ThailandProperty.News, remained far from disheartened.
Andrew was the only Asia-based property journalist to feature in the long list for any of the 20 categories, an achievement that he’s very proud of.
By default that makes him the best property journalist in Asia, at least when it comes to these important awards
He said: “When you look at the final shortlist for International Property Journalist of the Year, it really does read like a who’s who of the good and great of property journalism.”
“Publications represented in the shortlist are The Financial Times, The Daily Telegraph, the Times, The Sunday Times and London’s City A.M.”
“To even be associated with these titles is awesome, and to be the only journalist in Asia to make any of the lists is a tremendous achievement in itself.”
ThailandProperty.News is still only nine months old, and there are exciting plans to develop the brand. It is already the most prolific publisher of Thailand property news, having published close to 150 property stories this year so far.
“To make the long list is what is arguably the most important property journalism awards in such a short time can only be good for the future,” he concluded.
