2014 Quills: Best Regional or Rural Affairs Report in any Medium

Sue Neales of The Australian won the 2014 Quill for Best Regional or Rural Affairs Report in any Medium.

Judges comment

Neales exposed a farm debt crisis in drought-stricken Queensland. She revealed the human anguish caused by brutal business decisions by the ANZ Bank to foreclose and force families off their farms. Her stories forced a change in bank and government behaviour. This was the best work in a large field of very high quality entries.
