PHOTO: Iain McGregor, The Press EDITORS' CHOICE EDITOR ANDREW HOLDEN PANPA 2011 Year Book 9 "By Monday morning, 48 hours after the 7.1 earthqua hit Canterbury, there was no need for me to tell locals tha there had been an earthqua There were many photos of devastation, in cluding ones with people starting the clean-up, but I wanted an image that would encapsulate the impact of the quake. The Dean's homestead is one of Canter- bury's most famous and loved properties - the long-standing Canterbury family includes Wal- labies coach Robbie Deans among its number. It was amazing the old brick homestead was still standing, even more amazing that no one was killed, here or anywhere in the province. The one mistake we made was not to print enough copies. The paper sold out, and there were arguments in shops over who would get the last copy." "The Pike River mine disaster, on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island, captured international attention as rescuers tried for five days to save 29 men trapped underground by an explosion. A second explosion meant they could not have survived. The Press had run the men's photographs on the front page only two days before, and as the local paper for that community did not want to exploit the families' grief. Instead, we went back in time, to a page with no colour, and no photos, just the names. The response was overwhelmingly positive, from readers, colleagues and industry friends " THE PRESS NOVEMBER 25 SEPTEMBER 6
