FIRST PRIZE- JAMES MURPHY (PENOLA PENNANT)

James Murphy is a young reporter who brought to life the tale of Penola couple Kate and Justin McDonald . The story flowed well and his use of descriptive phrasing and well-chosen quotes captured the attention of the reader. James cleverly provided context to the McDonald’s achievement, such as comparing the distance travelled to well-known geographical locations, and provided an appropriate level of detail to key parts of the story, such as the parameters for the world record attempt. Overall it was an enjoyable and inspiring read.

SECOND PRIZE- JOE SCHWAB (MURRAY PIONEER)

Another quality piece of journalism with Joe Schwab deserving of praise for his persistence and ability to foster a working relationship with a key local sports administrator. Joe did not give up on the story despite his initial inquiry being blocked and he was ultimately able to secure an expansive interview with another source, and put the quotes to good use. It is never easy to write an article knowing it will bring negative feedback or criticism and Joe, as well as The Murray Pioneer, should be praised for their commitment to quality storytelling.

THIRD PRIZE- ALICIA LUDI-SCHUTZ (THE LEADER)

The story of Angaston Bowling Club member Liam Buckley provides great insight into the life of a talented and inspiring member of the Barossa community. While the piece is longer than most other entries in the category, it was an effortless read covering many elements of Liam’s journey to a world title and testament to the reporter’s interviewing skills.

SPECIAL MENTION- JEFF PISTOLA (THE COURIER)
