The awards, which are open to papers across the Asia Pacific, this year attracted more than 1000 entries.
The Land was named Newspaper of the Year in the non-daily, 25,000-90,000 circulation category from a shortlist of 10 finalists. It follows on from consecutive wins in the same category in 2010 and 2011.
Judges said The Land was “without doubt an outstanding newspaper”.
“It continues to connect closely with its community as it has been doing for more than a century.”
The Land's editor Sally White said the award was testament to the efforts of paper's hard working team across NSW and the support of its readers and advertisers.
“The founders of The Land set out to produce a paper that was a champion for agriculture and the bush. And that’s what we’re still about 101 years later.
“This is a fantastic endorsement of what we do by the newspaper industry and a great way to kick off our second century.”
Other Newspaper of the Year winners included The Australian (daily 90,000+ circulation); The Sunday Age (Sunday Newspaper of the Year); The Examiner, Launceston (daily, 25,000-90,000) and The Border Mail and Sunshine Coast Daily (joint winners – daily 10,000-25,000 circulation).
