Broken Bay Diocese’s quarterly magazine Broken Bay News has taken out the top gong at the 2021 Australasian Catholic Press Association Awards.
The Bishop Philip Kennedy Memorial Trophy is awarded to the publication that wins either one of two awards: best print publication or best online publication.
Broken Bay News was awarded best print publication after judges commented that it was a very engaging publication and an outstanding contribution to the Catholic media landscape in Australia and New Zealand.
The awards were held yesterday via ZOOM after the annual ACPA Conference was cancelled for the second year due to COVID-19 state lockdowns.
ACPA President Neil Helmore said the awards are an opportunity for Catholic media to celebrate the outstanding contribution organisations make to the Church in Australia.
“Catholic media in Australia continues to strive to lift up the Church and celebrate the diversity and mission through dedicated and talented journalists, photographers and designers that make up the Catholic Press,” Mr Helmore said.
“I take this opportunity to also thank all the judges and ACPA Committee members for continuing to provide this opportunity to celebrate members achievements during this difficult period,” he said.
Other award winners included the The eRecord (Perth Archdiocese) for best online publication, The Catholic Weekly for best advertising feature, The Well from the Parramatta Diocese for best use of digital media, Wollongong Diocese for best layout and design website and Majellan Magazine for best layout and design publication.
