SINGAPORE: The R.AGE team did the country proud by bagging yet another two international awards at the Asian Digital Media Awards yesterday.

Up against some of the continent’s biggest news organisations, the young R.AGE team won gold awards in the Best Use of Online Video and Best Innovation to Engage Youth Audiences categories.

The R.AGE team could not attend the ceremony due to several on-going investigations and projects, but deputy executive editor and producer Ian Yee said the awards will give the team a lift during this hectic period.

“We’re always juggling multiple investigations and projects at R.AGE, and as much as I wanted to bring the team to the ceremony, our work always comes first,” said Yee.

R.AGE is currently working on its Student/Trafficked campaign against human trafficking through colleges (rage.com.my/trafficked), Eye On The Ball feature-length documentary on the national blind football team (fb.com/eyeontheballfilm), and the much-anticipated third phase of its Predator In My Phone campaign (fb.com/ragepmp).

The two awards come just weeks after R.AGE was awarded a World Digital Media Award in Berlin, Germany.
