Best Community Profile 2016

Saturday, February 25, 2017

Judge: LAUREN NOVAK
Political Reporter, The Advertiser

I favoured pieces which came from interviews that would have been difficult to secure, largely because of the sensitivity of the topic or the experience of the person. Some of the features, while nice to read, wouldn't have required as much effort to get to print as those recognised with awards. In light of this, I would encourage entrants to use their explanation of their entry to give more detail about how the story came about In future.

Winner

Greg Mayfield, The Recorder, "Heart of fire"

Many entrants profiled survivors of the Pinery bushfires but Greg Mayfield's account of Brad Dennis' near-death experience was the most engaging. It is not always encouraged for a reporter to insert themselves into the story but Greg's unique Introduction caught my attention and the first-person perspective was not overdone throughout the rest of the piece. He elicited great quotes from his subject - on what was clearly a difficult topic - and unfurled the story for readers In a compelling and detailed way.   Read More
