Beaudesert Bulletin journalist Susie Cunningham’s coverage of the campaign to reopen Duck Creek Road was awarded second place for Best Editorial Campaign at the recent Queensland Country Press Association Awards.
Judges said the planning that was undertaken to launch this campaign made this entry stand out.
“A meeting of residents and key stakeholders was arranged by the masthead, a series of photos was taken, and a logo was created. These actions provided a foundation for a solid and sustained campaign that presented a compelling argument via multiple voices and perspectives.”
The Beaudesert Bulletin’s Father’s Day feature was awarded third place in the Best One Off or Regular Print Commercial Feature.
The Beaudesert Bulletin’s sister publication, the Canungra Times, took third place in the Best Free Newspaper category.
