Students were required to submit a feature story of not more than 1500 words in length. The use of multimedia was encouraged.
The judging panel was made up of journalists from brisbanetimes.com.au and academic staff from the School.
The theme of the story for this year was Brisbane: its life, people, places, heritage or future.
Entries were judged on the following criteria: relevance and salience to the community; originality; clarity and style; accuracy; research; impact; innovation; ethicality; creativity and production.
Congratulations to Bethanie Newman, the winner of the 2012 brisbanetimes.com.au Journalism Competition!
Judges Commentary: ‘Stories about homelessness are common, which makes producing a "cut through" piece a challenge for any journalist, let alone one at the start of their career. Beth Newman’s article is not only compelling and informative, it is also well-structured. Her primary source provides the narrative for a feature story which achieves what all journalists set out to do - engage the audience.’
We had many high calibre entries for the competition this year, please also view the finalists and highly commended entries.
