The Australian Jewish News (AJN) – the newspaper that has published my film reviews for more than 25 years – has dominated the NSW Multicultural Media Awards. The paper won five categories at the 2016 Premier’s Multicultural Media Awards in Sydney last week. The paper’s wins were for:
- Best investigative story: Joshua Levi, “Communal Lobby faces fraud investigation”
- Best image (pictured below): Noel Kessel, “A walk for peace”
- Best news report: Joshua Levi, “Royal Commission into child sexual abuse”
- Best use of social and digital media, Facebook and Twitter coverage of the “Royal Commission into child sexual abuse”
- Best print publication
The paper also had a finalist nomination for “Best long-form feature”, Zeddy Lawrence, “Lest We Forget: Centenary of Anzac”.
The newspaper continues to provide high-quality, professional journalism to the Jewish communities around Australia, with an extraordinarily high rate of readership in the Australian Jewish community.
