28th Quills: Artwork

Matthew Davidson of The Age has won the 2022 Artwork Quill for “Jack's Story”.

Judges' citation

The judges were impressed by Matt Davidson's sensitive and careful approach to a young gay male sexual assault story. With its relaxed illustrative style and subtle use of colour, the work dealt with this complex issue in the form of an online, scrollable graphic novel, pitched directly to its younger audience. The overwhelming response to Jack’s Story proves that there are new ways to tell stories, and new audiences to read them.
