2022 Lifetime Achievement Award

Jon Faine was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for a decades-long career spent setting the daily news agenda, holding the powerful to account and telling our stories. Introduced by the ABC's Dan Ziffer, Jon invited several of his former producers to the stage to keep him in check.

Each year, the Melbourne Press Club honours a journalist or journalists whose career has left an extraordinary mark on Victorian and/or Australian journalism. The honour, presented at the annual Quill Awards dinner each March, is bestowed at the discretion of the MPC board.
