2014 Quills: Best Sports Photograph

Colleen Petch of the Herald Sun has won the 2014 Quill for Best Sports Photograph, for her photograph of Australian wicketkeeper Brad Haddin executing a spectacular flying catch at the Boxing Day test match in Melbourne.

Judges’ comments

This is a classic photo of a classic catch. Colleen has caught the image with impeccable timing using her remote camera attached to the wall of the grandstand behind her. It’s an example of her dedication and enormous skill.


Highly commended

Alex Coppel from News Corp was highly commended in this category for his photo of Mick Fanning at the moment that he knew he had won the final of the Bells Beach competition.
