PETER Greste, the award-winning Australian journalist who spent 14 months in an Egyptian jail.
Antony Catalano who earlier this year purchased 170 regional newspapers from Nine Entertainment for $125 million.
And the Premier Daniel Andrews.
There was a star-studded line-up of speakers at the 109th annual Victorian Country Press Association conference and awards day last Friday.
And at the end of it all, right at the end of the awards night, the South Gippsland Sentinel-Times won one of the last and most important gongs of the event, the ‘Best Advertising Feature’ publication for the year, for its ‘Discover 2018’ summer tourism feature.
There’s still time for businesses who want to promote themselves to visitors and locals alike to book space in this year’s now award-winning feature.
The newspaper’s editor, Matthew Male, who had a strong hand in writing dozens of articles for last year’s feature, appropriately accepted the award.
Well done Matt, and well done to the whole Sentinel-Times’ team.
