FT scoops six prizes at SOPA awards

The Financial Times’ Chinese-language website, FTChinese.com, took the prize for best feature writing at the Society of Publishers in Asia (SOPA) awards last night.

The site was one of six winners for the FT, which also took home gongs for newspaper design, digital journalism (for reporting on China and the Olympics) and scoop of the year.

FTChinese.com’s winning effort was an article on 30 years of reforms in China.

The title’s Mumbai correspondent, Joe Leahy, was also named journalist of the year at the event.

FT revamps Chinese website, increases video

The Financial Times has overhauled its website FTChinese.com, which was launched in 2005.

FT video channels and content on careers are being added to the site, which will also have improved internal search and navigation, a statement from the publisher said.

Readers can also bookmark content on the site with a new ‘favourites’ tool.
