2019 Quills: Features Photograph

Jason South won the 2019 Features Photograph Quill for coverage from Christchurch for The Age.

Judges' citation

Jason South's photos from the aftermath of the Christchurch massacre were superb. The whole world was looking at images from the event and Jason's were second to none. His portrait of New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern shows her strength and empathy as she became a symbol of strong leadership and compassion in a time of crisis.
