Reading Time: 9 minutes

Andrew Batt, the Founder and Editor of ThailandProperty.News, has been longlisted in the International Journalist of the Year by the U.K.-based Property Press Awards 2018.

The judges’ shortlist will be announced on April 16, 2018, and award winners will be revealed at a reception on Tuesday, May 15, at London’s iconic City Hall, home to the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.

Categories in the property awards cover consumer and trade press, and both print and online media, and include journalists from some of the world’s leading media, including the BBC, The Times, the Mail on Sunday and the Wall Street Journal.

Up to three judges will determine the winners of each of the 20 individual property awards. As with last year, almost half the judges are new to this year’s awards, while existing judges will be allocated new categories to preside over.

The panel of judges is represented by top professionals from the media, trade bodies, professional services and large property corporations.

Property4Media’s Chief Executive Officer, Henry Hemming, said: “Property4Media is delighted with this year’s unprecedented level of interest in the PPAs from the nation’s property writing supremoes.”

Andrew Batt, Founder and Editor of ThailandProperty.News, added: “To be longlisted for such a prestigious property award, and alongside some of my personal property journalism idols, is absolutely awesome.”

“To be the only Asia-based journalist to be longlisted is even more special.”

This is the eighth year of the Property Press Awards.
