Panpa Bulletin : June 2006
NEWS STEVE Braunias, 45 a senior reporter and columnist at the Sunday Star-Times, won the Qantas Fellowship to Wolfson College, Cambridge University, at this year's Qantas Print Media Awards. The award allows Braunias to study in residence for 10 weeks using research facilities and at- tending lectures at any of the university's colleges. Everything is provided - even a bicycle and safety helmet for getting around Cambridge. Braunias will have the opportu- nity to study one of three options he has nominated -- literary jour- nalism, including book reviewing and book-page editing; (Braunias used to be book page editor at the Listener magazine.); research into Robert Fitzroy, the second Gov- ernor of New Zealand after the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840; or an anthology of writing about soccer in England. The anthology would support his study and 10,000 word essay about the history of soccer writ- ing, completed when he studied at Oxford University in 2001 as re- cipient of the Reuters Foundation scholarship. Braunias's Qantas award was one of 16 won by the Sunday Star-Times, including Best Weekly Newspaper. The Christchurch-based daily, The Press, was judged to be the Best New Zealand Newspaper. Gavin Ellis, the former editor of The New Zealand Herald, received the Print Industry Award for Out- standing Achievement. Tim Hume, of the Sunday Star- Times, has the rare distinction of winning both the senior and the junior Newspaper Feature Writer awards. Barry Young, director of the awards, said the guiding princi- ple of the Qantas Media Awards was to recognise excellence. If, in the opinion of the judges, a jun- ior submits work of a quality that challenges those of his or her more experienced colleagues then he or she is assessed alongside them. If good enough, the junior can win both awards.
