2020 Quills: Judging Statement


Given most coverage of the 2019-20 bushfires in south-eastern Australia fell across the New Year period, the club clarified its position in the last round on portfolio entry publication dates.

Last year we accepted entries that involved a portfolio of work published in December 2019 and January 2020. They were accepted into the previous Quills round on the condition that the primary work under consideration was published in 2019.

To complement that decision, in this Quills round entries we will accept entries that involve a portfolio of work that was published across December 2019 and January 2020 on the condition that the primary work under consideration was published in 2020.

Furthermore, work submitted in last year's Quill Awards will not be eligible for consideration this year.

Further information about Quills category criteria and conditions of entry can be found by visiting our Quill awards homepage. Contact entries@melbournepressclub.com for queries.

The 26th Quills celebrate the best in Victorian journalism. Entries are open until Friday 5 february 2021.
