Congratulations to postgraduate broadcasting student, Dr Ann Jones, who has been named a finalist in the United Nations Association of Australia Media Peace Awards 2010.
The Media Peace Awards are open to journalists throughout Australia, and aim to promote an understanding of humanitarian and social justice issues in our society by recognising those whose work raises awareness and influences policy change.
Ann is a finalist in the Special Award Category of Promotion of Aboriginal Reconciliation, for her radio documentary entitled, The Media and Indigenous Australians, and is the only student nominated in the awards.
“To be listed as a finalist next to professional journalists from all over the country is a testament to the high quality of the broadcasting course here at WAAPA,” said Dr Jones.
“Being listed as a finalist is not only an acknowledgement of my own work, but also of the training and support of the teachers and staff at ECU.”
Lecturer and Broadcasting Course Coordinator, Ms Jo McManus, congratulated Ann on her achievements.
“To be recognised at this national award is a fantastic recognition for Ann, and we wish her all the best at the awards ceremony in October.”
The winners will be announced at an Awards Presentation Dinner, at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne on 22 October.
