The News Lens has won the Silver Award (Honorable mention) for Excellence in Opinion Writing at the 2023 SOPA Awards for Editorial Excellence.
Founded in 2013, The News Lens has been committed to providing diverse perspectives through its independent media outlets. Over the past decade, we have been communicating with our readers and communities through not only words but also videos, podcasts, and infographics, among others, to explore issues that matter to Taiwan and the world.
Introducing the winner of the Silver Award for Excellence in Opinion Writing:
"20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China: The World Is Deeply Misunderstood When Criticizing Xi Jinping " (Author: Shaomin Li, Chair Professor at O'Dowd University, USA)
In 2022, Xi Jinping was re-elected as the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party for a record third term. While many media outlets criticized his desire to consolidate control, the op-ed argued that our evaluation of Xi and the CCP was tinged with misunderstanding. Through this article, we hope to provide new ways to look at the re-elected leader of the regime.
As a milestone for the tenth anniversary of The News Lens, winning the "Excellence in Opinion Writing" award at the "SOPA Awards for Editorial Excellence" is an affirmation of our pursuit of innovation and media independence, as well as a response to the support of our readers.
Mario Yang, co-founder and CCO of The News Lens, said: "In addition to providing accurate information and important information, presenting diverse perspectives is also very important. The fact that we were recognized by the judges and won the Silver Award for 'Excellence in Opinion Writing' represents the principle of The News Lens since its establishment - to stimulate more diverse ideas through the communication of facts and diverse perspectives."
