2019 Quills: Judging Statement

Given most coverage of the recent bushfires in south-eastern Australia has fallen across the New Year period, the club is clarifying its position on portfolio entry publication dates.

Our conditions state that “entries must have been published or broadcast between 1 January 2019 and 31 December 2019”. However entries that involve a portfolio of work published across December 2019 and January 2020 will be accepted in the current Quills round on the condition that the primary work under consideration was published in 2019.

Work submitted to this year's Quill Awards will not be eligible for consideration the following year.

Further information about Quills category criteria and conditions of entry can be found by visiting our Quill awards homepage.

The 25th Quills celebrate the best in Victorian journalism. Entries are open until Friday 31 January 2020.
