2018 Quills: Radio Journalism (Short Form)


Amy Bainbridge, Rachael Brown & Naomi Selvaratnam of ABC Radio AM won the 2018 Radio Journalism (Short Form) Quill for 'Insurance Industry Reports'.

Judges' citation

Amy's compelling and sensitive report told the stories of two women who were harshly treated by insurance companies. It led to the intervention of a senator in one case and prompted the backdown of a major insurer in the other. In the case of Amanda Dunn, the battle continues for a payout following the death of her husband Roger.
