At a time when Australia’s rural and regional media landscape is under unprecedented pressure, Women in Media Australia is proud to shine a light on outstanding reportage coming from female journalists working across our regions.
For the fourth year running, Women in Media Australia, in partnership with the National Press Club of Australia, is set to call for entries for the country’s preeminent award for up-and-coming regional reporters.
The Caroline Jones Women in Media Young Journalist’s Award recognises tenacity and passion for the craft of journalism from young women working across rural and regional Australia.
It seeks to immerse the award winner in an intensive experience of journalism, politics and government in Canberra and to open doors to the experience and generosity of some of the country’s top women journalists – with travel and accommodation covered.
Meet WiM Canberra convenor, multi-award-winning journalist/editor Emma Macdonald; veteran journalist Caroline Jones AO for whom the award is named; and 2018 winner Emily Jane Smith who won the award while reporting from remote areas in the Kimberley WA.
