PJR WINS GLOBAL CREATIVE INDUSTRIES AWARD
http://pacificmediacentre.blogspot.com/2010/10/pjr-wins-global-creative-industries.html

BEIJING (Pacific Media Centre/Pacific Media Watch): Pacific Journalism Review has won a "Creative Stimulus Award" for academic journals in the inaugural Academy Awards of the Global Creative Industries in Beijing, China, this month.

The journal, published by AUT University's Pacific Media Centre and now in its 16th year, was one of five international journals to receive awards.

The latest edition. published last week, featured "media freedom in Oceania" as the cover theme.

Other journals honoured in the awards include the British-based International Journal of Cultural Studies.

Professor Barry King of AUT's Faculty of Creative Technologies, who was present for the awards ceremony as part of the 5th Creative China Harmonious World International Forum on Cultural Industries, accepted the award on PJR's behalf.

Professor King, who is on the advisory board of the PMC, said: "The inclusion of PJR with world class journals such as the International Journal of Cultural Studies is a testament to its development into a journal of reference and international quality in the field of journalism practice and education.

"AUT's international reputation in a key partner market benefits significantly from the efforts of the editor, Associate Professor David Robie, and his team."

The award citation said that in view of its "innovation and contribution in reporting hot topics" PJR was being awarded the title of "Motivated Thinking Periodical".

During the conference, the Global Academic Association of Cultural Industries (GAACI) was established.

In the initiation ceremony, Professor Fan Zhou, dean of the Institute of Cultural Industries (ICI), Communication University of China (CUC); and Professor John Hartley, foundation dean of the Faculty of Creative Industries at Australia's Queensland University of Technology, delivered the founding declaration.

Six other members in different fields of cultural industries, including AUT's Professor King, also participated in the ceremony.

Other participating universities include the University of Adelaide, Australia; Belgium's Free University of Brussels; Chulalongkorn University of Thailand; Keio University of Japan; and Singapore's Nanyang Technology University.

Professor Fan said: "The association will build a cooperation platform by sharing research and teaching resources and experience, including staff exchange, joint research programmes and academic conferences to promote the development of education and research in cultural industries."
