New Delhi: Digital news platform The Quint has won two top awards at the Foxglove Awards, 2018 held at Hard Rock Café, Worli, in Mumbai on 7th June. The Quint was recognised for its pioneering work in digital news and media distribution, winning a Gold for ‘Best Native Advertising’ and a Bronze in the ‘Best News and Features Website’ categories.
The Quint, in the last 3 years, has been the fastest growing digital-first new platform in the country. It had a very successful run in 2017, when it won three Golds and two Silvers at the South Asian Digital Media Awards. In the same year, it also picked up a total of eight awards at the Digipub Awards. It started off the current year on a high too, bagging seven awards at the Vdonxt Awards, presented by Adobe. Started in 2015, with the primary objective of recognising great work from young agencies and publishers, the Foxglove Awards have had over 200 ad agencies and publishers as participants in the last 3 years.

With the industry coming to terms with the future of digital news dissemination, The Quint – as the fastest growing digital-first news platform – is poised to continue leading the trend instead of following it”, says Ritu Kapur, CEO and co-founder of The Quint.
