I was very proud to be nominated and to receive the 2016 JEAA Ossie award for Best Audio Story by an Undergraduate or Postgraduate Student over 2 minutes.
This was for the Aquafaba piece that originally aired on Radio National, August 20, 2016.
The annual Ossie Awards, named after journalist Osmar S. White, are organised by the Journalism Education and Research Association of Australia. Senior journalists and editors judge the main award categories.
I was also delighted to receive one of three Schiavon Scholarships awarded to University of Melbourne Masters of Journalism Scholarships in 2016.
The very generous award will allow me to continue to practice my journalism skills and build on my solid foundation of skills as I enter a career in Journalism.
I would like to thank the trustees, the University and the staff of the MoJ course for their support.
