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 event was held as part of the Asian Publishing Convention (APC) held at Crowne Plaza Mutiara Kuala Lumpur on November 30 & December 1, 2012 attended by 152 delegates from 14 countries.

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.

In giving this Lifetime Achievement Award, the organizers, sponsors and partners are greatly honored to present its Lifetime Achievement for 2012 to this outstanding son of Malaysia who should be an example to this country and every other Asian society.
