Unfortunately I was unsuccessful in the Media Super Student Journalist of the Year awards, however I don’t plan on giving up there. There’s plenty more opportunities out there for a budding journalist!

The winner of the competition Colin Cosier, is a postgrad University of Technology Sydney student. His winning piece, titled Tracking Baltimore’s Addicts impressed judges Marcus Strom (Deputy foreign editor, Sydney Morning Herald), Conor Duffy (National environment reporter, ABC TV) and John Connell (Freelance).

“Colin’s piece showed a high level of professionalism, independent thinking and get up and go. It was well shot, edited and written. Colin’s use of data visualisation broke down complex issues and figures and his interviewees were well chosen and placed,” the judges said.
