Jayde Vincent of Nine News won the 2019 TV/Video News Quill for her coverage of bushfires from Mallacoota.
The devastating bushfires that impacted Victoria on New Year's Eve became the story of the summer. Jayde flew into Mallacoota, the first reporter on the ground in time for the 6PM news that night. The story that went to air was one of compelling images and dramatic first-hand accounts, made possible by teamwork behind the scenes to overcome the technical challenges of filing from a town cut off from the nation.
