2018 Quill Awards Open for Entries


Visit the Quills home page for entries and information


Entries have opened for the 2018 Quill Awards, featuring a new award recognising excellence in the coverage of women in sport.

The new Quill, sponsored by VicHealth, will be one of 29 category prizes for Victorian journalism covering print, broadcast and digital media. In other changes, radio categories have been amended to better recognise the difference between short form and long form radio journalism.

The $7500 Gold Quill – supported by MPC principal sponsors Virgin Australia and Monash University - will be awarded to the work judged best of all the Quill winners.

The Quill Awards – now in their 24th year - are open to all journalists employed by Victorian media organisations or those who work primarily for Victorian media outlets.

Melbourne Press Club members are entitled to one free entry. Non-members and members submitting additional entries pay an administration fee of $105 per entry.

Entries close on Thursday 31 January 2019. Finalists in all categories will be named in early March and winners will be announced at the annual Quills dinner at Crown Palladium on Friday 15 March. Bookings for the dinner open in early February.

For award details and online entries visit the Quills entry site.
