Kuala Lumpur, Dec 1, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Eighteen winners and 38 excellence awardees from eighteen categories were awarded during the sixth Asian Publishing Awards (APA) on November 30, 2012.

The Lifetime Achievement Award was also given to Dato' Hussamuddin bin Hj Yaacub, Chairman and CEO of Karangkraf Sdn Bhd. He has built the biggest Bahasa language book and magazine publishing force in Malaysia over 30 years.
