I was introduced to the Hong Kong-based English-language magazine Digital Media last year and quickly came to appreciate the thoughtful contents and colorful insights contained in the pages of each monthly issue. You may be interested to see the results of the magazine's inaugural Digital Media Awards, which reflect the opinions of a Who's Who panel of judges assembled especially to curate the best marketing campaigns of 2007 from the Asia Pacific region.
