Kennedy Awards: 7NEWS scores top gongs

Chris Reason, Bruce McAvaney and 7NEWS Spotlight honoured for journalism excellence

The Seven Network’s 7NEWS has been recognised for excellence in journalism, blitzing the top TV gongs at the 2022 Kennedy Awards in Sydney on Friday night.

7NEWS Chief Reporter Chris Reason was recognised for his extraordinary reportage from the war zone, for his entry entitled “Frontline Ukraine”, dedicating his Harry Potter Award: Outstanding Television News Reporting to the people of the besieged country.

‘Reaso’, who was also one of only three finalists in the prestigious Journalist Of The Year award, said: “the TV journalist is the front face of a truly team effort, including the extraordinary work of my cameramen, producers and especially the local team on the ground in Ukraine. The hardest part of this assignment was having to farewell them. I pay tribute to them and the incredible resilience of the people of Ukraine.”

Seven’s Director of News and Public Affairs, Craig McPherson said: “Chris took the audience into the heart of the Ukraine crisis, masterly capturing the human tension and toll while saturating his nightly reports with up-to-the minute war status.

“Chris put himself in the middle of the war zone with the people of the Ukraine, giving our viewers a complete understanding while capturing the ‘feeling’ of what was occurring. All this complemented with extensive live reporting across all hours of the day and night. It is a fitting award for journalistic excellence.”

Hard on the heels of his masterful commentary of track and field for Seven’s broadcast of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, 7SPORT icon Bruce McAvaney was inducted into the Lifetime Achievement Hall of Fame, accepting the honour via video message after it was presented by leading horse trainer, Gai Waterhouse.

A humbled Mr McAvaney said: “Looking back at who’s stood where I am tonight, I know I am in very good company. I am struck, not just by the big names, but the diversity of talent.”

7NEWS Spotlight also took out the Rebecca Wilson Scoop of the Year prize for its insightful and compelling storytelling in “Melissa Caddick: The Vanishing”.

Executive Producer Mark Llewellyn, Presenter Michael Usher, Producer Taylor Auerbach and Camera Operator John Varga toasted the program’s first-ever win.

Mr Llewellyn said: “We may be the new kid on the block. We may not have the vast resources of the established players. But, as they say, it’s not the size of the dog in the fight that counts, it’s the size of the fight in the dog – and my small team fought tirelessly to get this huge scoop. I’m so proud.”

Continuing the network’s success, 7NEWS camera operator James Cannon won the Gary Ticehurst Award for Outstanding News Camera Coverage for his frontline footage during 2022 invasion of Ukraine and Russian retreat from Irpin.

Mr McPherson said: “Jimmy has worked through war zones from Syria, Iraq and now, his longest stint on the front line, in Ukraine, His pictures and technical ability to get the product out of the most grim locations is to world standard.

“Multi-talented, Jimmy has an eye for recording standout scenes and then editing them for broadcast on location wherever is required. In the Ukraine, all his skills came together, and his work rightfully acknowledged with this award’.”

Fellow 7NEWS camo Simon Hydzik was also nominated in the same category for his entry, “War in Ukraine”, which was recently nominated for a TV Week Logie Award.

Seven took home its four awards from seven nominations, which also recognised Glenn Connley from Prime7 Local News (now 7NEWS), nominated for the Cliff Neville Award for Outstanding Team Player Or Mentor.

In a brand-new category recognising outstanding long form current affairs – and named in memory of former Seven Chief Executive David Leckie – Denham Hitchcock, Mr Auerbach and Mr Llewellyn from 7NEWS Spotlight were again nominated for their exclusive with NT police officer Zac Rolfe over two episodes, “The Shooting” and “The Trial”.

The Kennedy Awards are named in honour of veteran police reporter Les Kennedy, who died in 2011 at the age of 53.

Andrew Laming defamation proceedings and independent review

The Walkley Foundation notes that in Federal Court of Australia defamation proceedings commenced by Dr Andrew Laming against the Nine Network, Nine issued the following apology to Dr Laming:

On 27 March 2021, Nine News Queensland broadcast a report about Dr Laming who was at the time a member of federal parliament. Serious allegations were made about Dr Laming in that report and he sued Nine because of it. Nine News has now seen material which indicates that the photograph Dr Laming took was not lewd in nature. Nine News unreservedly withdraws those allegations about Dr Laming and apologises to him and his family for the hurt and harm caused by the report.

The proceedings have otherwise settled on confidential terms.

The Walkley Foundation Directors have resolved to commission an independent review of the awarding of the 2022 Walkley Award for Television/Video News Reporting to Peter Fegan and Rebeka Powell.

The Walkley Foundation has given awards to recognise Australian journalism since 1956, and regularly reviews its processes. The review of this particular award will be conducted by individuals with no connection to the work under examination.

Caroline Jones award winner announced


Women in Media is delighted to announce that the winner of the Caroline Jones Women in Media Young Journalist’s Award for 2022 is Samantha Jonscher.

Samantha is the lead reporter for the ABC in Alice Springs and has also spent time reporting for ABC in Darwin.

She is the sixth recipient of the award since its inception in 2017.

Runner-up is Briana Fiore from ABC’s Great Southern region in Western Australia.

Samantha impressed the judges this year with a multi-platform selection of stories covering domestic violence, Indigenous femicide, and water rights. Her stories were of national significance and showed a deep commitment to elevating the voices of First Nations people while telling their stories with compassion.

Samantha is also a keen visual journalist, overlaying her reportage with powerful images that enhance its value and impact.

Her stories have come about only after years of dedicated work to establish trust with Indigenous communities, made more challenging when communities have a legacy of colonisation and suspicion of media.

This year, Samantha was awarded The Walkley Foundation’s Our Watch Fellowship.

She was last year’s runner up in the Caroline Jones Award for another series of excellent articles on Indigenous affairs, which Caroline described at the time as being “powerful and impeccably objective” and prepared with the utmost “cultural sensitivity”.

Caroline tragically passed away in May, having taken enormous joy in her involvement with the award and its recipients each year.

Judges, including Women in Media Patron Victoria Laurie, former Women in Media national co-chair Cath Webber and Women in Media Canberra Convenor Emma Macdonald, praised Samantha for her dedication to the Indigenous communities she writes about and for producing highly principled journalism.

Ms Laurie said Samantha displayed “a deep understanding and empathy in reporting Indigenous stories in a way that gives the subjects power over their own story”.

The award is supported by the National Press Club and seeks to shine a light on outstanding reportage by female journalists working across our regions.

It is named in honour of Caroline Jones AO, a ground-breaking journalist who joined the ABC in 1963 and became the first female reporter for This Day Tonight. She reported for Four Corners between 1972-1981 before presenting Radio National’s Search for Meaning program. In 1996, she became the presenter of Australian Story.

Samantha has won a $2500 personal development grant and the opportunity to spend a week in Canberra being mentored by Women in Media members working in the Press Gallery and national capital media outlets.

Queensland Clarion Awards


The winners of the 2022 Queensland Clarion Awards were announced at a gala event in Brisbane on Saturday, October 8.

The ABC Four Corners team of Anne Connolly, Ali Russell and Stephanie Zillman were jointly awarded the Journalist of the Year award for their report, ‘State Control’.

Judges acknowledged the work was rewarded not only for shining a light on the exploitation of vulnerable Queenslanders who placed their trust in a public institution, but also for the complexity and degree of difficulty in bringing the story to air.

People under the control of the Public Trustee are gagged from speaking out. Journalists who identify them can be criminally charged. The ABC had to go to the Supreme Courts in Queensland and Western Australia to win the right to show the public for the first time how tens of thousands of Australians live under state control.

The report was the culmination of a year-long investigation which resulted in a public apology from the Queensland state government and instigated two inquiries.

The award for Most Outstanding Contribution to Journalism was given to sports journalist and presenter, Pat Welsh from the Seven Network. Recognised for more than 47 years in the industry, Pat has covered numerous Olympics and Commonwealth Games, rugby to racing, the Golf Majors and every other type of sport in between. Pat’s trackside interviews are legendary with the likes of Cathy Freeman and Sally Pearson, just after they won Olympic gold. Pat also got the first interview with Allan Border after he announced his retirement.

Throughout Pat’s media career he has donated his time to helping many charities and mentored many young reporters. After a long and dedicated career, Pat is retiring at the end of the year.

The Queensland Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance Committee congratulates all of the 2022 finalists and winners. Read on to see the complete list of award winners.

The Clarion Awards recognise creative and courageous acts of journalism that seek out the truth and give new insight to an issue. The awards seek to recognise excellence, independence, innovation, and originality in storytelling and distinctive reporting.

The winners of the 2022 WA Media Awards were announced on Saturday, November 12, in Perth.

The West Australian journalist, Daryna Zadvirna won the prestigious 2022 West Australian Journalist of the Year—The Daily News Centenary Prize for her coverage of the war in Ukraine.

The 26-year-old had been a print journalist for less than three years before she took personal leave, bought a camera and independently travelled to Ukraine to tell and show the stories of the Russian invasion of her homeland. Daryna had no itinerary, no guide and no cameraman and relied on a network of family and friends as she traversed the country filming the devastation and speaking to the people on the ground impacted by the war.

With no prior camera experience she returned after five weeks, with 17 hours of footage and interviews, which resulted in the documentary, “My Ukraine: Inside the warzone”, which won the Video Feature category, produced by Natalie Bonjolo, Daryna and The West Australian team.

Daryna also won the Feature Photograph/Photographic Essay category for her “My Ukraine: Inside the Warzone”, Sunday Times Magazine, The West Australian piece, and was part of the team who took out the Multimedia Feature prize for The West Australian video series, “Foul Play – The Tiny Pinder Story”.

In awarding Daryna the top prize, the judges said: “Displaying tremendous personal courage and commitment to her craft, Daryna Zadvirna created the absolute stand-out piece of journalism of the year.

“Her stunning footage and wealth of interviews with everyday Ukrainians combined to build an intensely personal account of the suffering the war has brought to the country of her birth – and the determination of its people to prevail in the face of overwhelming odds.

“The judges were impressed with the sensitivity with which she handled her subject matter and her superb story-telling that wove a compelling narrative.

“The result was an emotionally powerful portrait of the horrors of the invasion.”

Mark Duffield was awarded The Clarion Award for Outstanding Contribution. Mark began his career in 1982 when he joined The South Western Times before moving to The West Australian in 1984. For close to four decades, he has been the much loved Chief Football Writer for The West Australian. However, this year, Mark announced a new chapter, leaving to join the Sports Entertainment Network (SEN) to take up a new role, hosting his own morning program.

MEAA WA President for Media, Kate Ferguson said: “Congratulations to the winners and finalists this evening. Despite the ongoing challenges facing the media industry, the engagement with the awards continues to grow year on year. We should be proud of the quality and range of work produced from Western Australia. It continues to be among the best in the country”.

The WA Media Awards are the pre-eminent state-based awards promoting excellence in the media. The annual awards celebrate quality journalism, and reward a media professional whose commitment to excellence in media coverage best informs and entertains West Australians.

According to The Australian, a review into the legitimacy of a Walkley Award given to Nine’s Peter Fegan and Rebeca Powell for a news report that was subsequently discredited has been completed, but the findings are unlikely to be released before the awards foundation holds its annual gala event in Sydney this Thursday night. Fegan and Powell won the television/video news reporting category in the 2021 Walkleys for their entry titled, “The Investigation of Andrew Laming” in relation to the then Federal MP’s alleged misconduct.
