Homelessness Media awards

What’s the best piece of reporting on homelessness you’ve seen this year?

A new People’s Pick award has been created for Council to the Homeless Person’s Victorian Homelessness Media Awards.

The People’s Pick allows anyone to bring CHPs attention to excellent stories on homelessness. Whilst your suggestion will not be an official nomination, it will prompt CHP to contact the journalist to encourage them to enter the awards

Entry for the $6,500 prize pool closes on 23 August, and is open to all Australian journalists.
