United Nations Association Media Peace Awards

THE Age dominated the annual Media Peace Awards presented last night by the United Nations Association of Australia.
Karen Kissane received the best print award for her Insight feature “Honour Killing in the Suburbs” (right), on the death of domestic abuse victim Julie Ramage. Kissane, whose article explored the provocation defence and gender, also won the award for increasing understanding of women’s rights. Photographer Jason South was named best photojournalist for images from the Boxing Day tsunami (left).
A Sunday Age team – Claire Miller, Clay Lucas, Matt Davidson, Rebecca Carmichael, Craig Sillitoe and Cathryn Tremain – was also recognised for promoting multicultural issues in a series on ethnic diversity in Melbourne.
