DISABILITY MAGAZINE SHINES AT MEDIA AWARDS
A magazine which helps break down stereotypes of people living with disability has been recognised at the 2016 Archbishop’s Media Citations for 2016.
Link Magazine, published by Inprint Media, is the recipient of the Mary MacKillop Award which was introduced in 2010 to acknowledge the work of a South Australian individual or media outlet contributing to the strengthening and building up of community and to “the creation of a truly human world”. The work reflects consistency and quality over a period of time.
Printed by Inprint Design, Link started out in 1980 as a small state-based newspaper and has since evolved into a national, professionally-designed, glossy magazine.
The 26th annual Catholic Archbishop’s Media Citations were announced today by Archbishop Philip Wilson.
The awards recognise reporting which shows a commitment to truth, balance, fairness and community service.
The Advertiser scooped the pool in the print category with Lauren Novak, Craig Cook and Liz Walsh winning the major awards for best news story, best feature and best series of articles respectively.
Other citation winners this year were: Jessica Adamson and Hendrik Gout from Channel 7 (TV category), Ian Henschke and Graham Knowles from ABC 891 (radio) and The Advertiser photographer Tait Schmaal.
There were also six certificates of commendation presented at the awards function.
