FIRST PLACE- Jack Hudson, The Bunyip

‘Dan’s Brave Battle’ educates the reader about depression and does so in a sensitive and professional manner. The reporter was able to glean raw and meaningful quotes from the club president and ultimately take the reader on a journey. An impressive piece of journalism.

SECOND PLACE- Les Pearson, Plains Producer

A well-written and informative piece which provides insight into the far reaching effects of concussion injuries. The story flows well and is underpinned by the clever use of quotes from the athlete.

THIRD PLACE- Paul Mitchell, Murray Pioneer

Another example of excellent interview techniques being put to good use. Credit to the reporter for covering all angles of the news story and having the courage and tenacity to proceed given it was clearly going to cause backlash.
