2020 Quills: TV Camera Work (Creative)

Travis Nemtsas of Nine News has won the 2020 TV Camera Work (Creative) Quill.

Judges' citation

Travis’s extraordinary pictures and montages of the deserted Melbourne CBD during lockdown are both a visual feast and will serve as a stunning historical record. Captured over 5 nights, with a variety of apparatus, Travis also edited the piece himself. Travis’s vision provided millions of Victorians with images of Melbourne that they were unable to see for themselves. He captured the beauty of the empty streets and landmarks in a hauntingly memorable way.
