This report has been made possible in part by a special partnership between World Report and Times of Oman, which has also enabled the report to be distributed throughout the sultanate. Times of Oman is Oman’s first and leading English daily newspaper. Established in 1975 and published by Muscat Press and Publishing House, it covers news events, culture and lifestyle, finance, politics and sports from the region, Asia and the world.
Times of Oman was the first newspaper in the country to create an online edition, as far back as 1998, and today it also boasts a mobile application, a highly active social media presence and an increasingly sophisticated website: www.timesofoman.com.
A pioneer in the media sector, the newspaper has won close to 150 international awards from various entities in the realm of design and presentation over the past few years, including nine from the Asian Media Awards, nearly 100 from the Society for News Design’s (SND) Creative Competition, three from Communication Arts Design Annual and two from World Press Cartoon, among many others.
