The best Victorian journalism of 2019 has been celebrated at the 2019 Quill awards dinner. Winners from 32 categories plus the Gold Quill were announced.
Michael Willson, of AFL Media, took home the Gold Quill for 'The Kick', a work judges said "triggered a national conversation that would otherwise never have happened."
In addition to the Quills, two national awards were announced. The Graham Perkin Australian Journalist of the Year award went to Anne Connolly of the ABC for her investigations into the aged care sector. Konrad Marshall of Good Weekend magazine took home the 5th Harry Gordon Australian Sports Journalist of the Year prize.
