2019 Quills: Business News

Nick McKenzie, Grace Tobin & Nick Toscano of The Age/60 Minutes won the 2019 Business News Quill for 'Crown Unmasked'.

Judges' citation

'Crown Unmasked' demonstrated the best of fearless, well-resourced and news-breaking journalism, uncovering issues that are crucial not only to the gaming industry but to the security of Australia's borders. It exposed a cavalier attitude by Crown management to the lives and safety of some of its employees.

The piece demonstrated a high level of investigative skill and excellent use of the broadcast and print mediums and will have a lasting impact on Crown.
