2021 Quills: Sports Feature

Konrad Marshall of Good Weekend has won the 2021 Sports Feature Quill.

Judges' citation

The quality of entries in this category was of a very high level. The judges found it difficult to separate the top three. Konrad’s piece was declared the winner as the profile gave us a rare insight into the rise of Patty Mills. It delves deeply into the connection Mills has with his mother, father and ancestors. It’s engaging, thoroughly researched and beautifully written.

The winning entry

Konrad Marshall, Good Weekend magazine, 'All the right moves'

Highly commended

Russell Jackson, ABC News, 'Rod Owen's Secret'

Other finalists

Chip LeGrand, The Age, 'Cruel game'

Damien Ractliffe, Craig Butt, Mark Stehle and Richard Lama, The Age, 'Head on: Rising concussion rates in community footy exposed amid calls for action on youngsters'
