PUBLIC SERVICE (Jury Commendation)
Mathrubhumi Daily (India, circulation 1,203,726 - ABC July to December 2010 - daily) for its SEED project



This massive environmental project with huge investment from the newspaper and its partners deserved special recognition based on the sheer numbers involved – impressive indeed!  It was fantastic that so many people from within the publishing organisation were involved in the project in a really hands-on way, giving of their time and expertise because they believed in the cause. We are sure this project has gone a long way toward improving employee relations within the organization as staff from various levels and departments worked together as volunteers for its success. This concept is something that can be replicated by other newspapers to build team spirit and a common goal for the greater good.
