2008 Perkin award winner Cameron Stewart

For a diverse and astonishing portfolio of work including news exclusives, a string of high-class features and four magazine cover stories.

The judging panel said Cameron Stewart produced an "astonishing body of work" in 2008.

"His work took him from gloomy alleys in Tibet to a prison in country Victoria, from the fusty halls of Melbourne's Athenaeum Club to gangsters' haunts in Brunswick," they said.
