Judges’ comments:

“Joel Tozer stood out with an impressive entry, harnessing strong interviewing and production techniques to deliver three untold, original and compelling stories. ‘Inside Providence’ displayed investigative skill, taking viewers into the world of Australian women in a Korean religious group. ‘Carmen’s Story’ was a delicately crafted survivor’s account of abuse, and ‘Cotton Wool Kid’ was a sympathetic and inspiring life-story of a man coping with a rare skin condition. The journalism was impactful, but also insightful, the result of strong trust and sensitivity to his subjects.”
