2019 Quills: TV Camera Work (Shot of the Year)

Trigby Chvastek of Nine News won the 2019 TV Camera Work (Shot of the Year) Quill for coverage of the arrest of Jonathan Dick.

Judges' citation

Trigby Chvastek’s was the first camera on scene to the arrest of Victoria’s most wanted fugitive. The shot was a confronting and visceral reminder of the violence Jonathan Dick had been accused of. Trigby made his way to the scene by foot, manoeuvred through a throng of police and members of the public, and overcome awkward angles to get this shot of the bloodied man moments after he was arrested. The shot went to a national audience before all other outlets, and stayed on news stories for weeks.

The winning entry

Trigby's entry consisted of several clips covering the arrest of Jonathan Dick, including Jonathan being escorted by officers and sitting under police guard.

Highly commended

John Parsons, Nine News, Mokbel Stabbing

Phil Loschiavo, 7NEWS, Bunyip Fires
