The judges summed up Mckenzie’s achievement as follows:

“Mckenzie’s three-part submission devoted valuable column inches to a very important topic for the business community – affordable and sustainable energy," they stated.

“His stories provided a rare long-form insight into electricity market contestability and the improved viability of battery power storage.

“Mckenzie was thorough and covered all bases, including relevant graphics and explaining the facts and figures pertaining to the changing face of WA’s energy market, and clearly spelt out the need for more reform.”

Our second award on the night was in the Culture and Arts category; it was for Katie McDonald’s July 2017 article on the arts sector and its impact on Perth’s development.

“This is a very well-researched suite of stories covering a diverse and complex sector in a detailed manner,” the judges stated.

“The stories explore both the challenges and opportunities for arts and culture in WA through multiple interviews, context and background.

“Importantly, they collectively point to the future of the sector in terms of funding issues and engagement with other industries such as tourism.

“Though complex, the stories are engaging, well-structured and have significant news value.”
