2020 Quills: Victorian Government Quill for Reporting on Multicultural Affairs

André Dao, Michael Green and Tia Kass of The Saturday Paper have won the 2020 Victorian Government Quill for Reporting on Multicultural Affairs Quill.

The award carries a $3,000 prize and is supported by the Victorian Government.

Judges' citation

‘We Feed You' presents multicultural voices - temporary migrants, working in the margins of the food chain - for inspired storytelling, using a collaborative approach among journalists, sources and the illustrator. The piece is highly creative, conveying the strength and complexity of the workers, the challenges they face and the important but often invisible role they play in our community. The apparent simplicity of this reporting, its use of first-person narratives, belies the deep thinking and effort behind the multimedia composition.
