2014 Quills: Best Suburban Report in Writing

Dana McCauley and Fiona Sexton of the Port Phillip Leader have won the 2014 Quill for Best Suburban Report in Writing for ‘School Space Race’.

Judges’ comment

Dana McCauley and Fiona Sexton’s ‘Build Our School’ campaign, which exposed an over-crowding crisis in Port Melbourne, was the stand-out entry. The multi-platform campaign made excellent use of social media, kept sustained pressure on both major parties and led to funding commitments from both ahead of the November 2014 election. This campaign demonstrates the important role suburban newspapers play in their communities.
