Hibiscus Matters editor Terry Moore has been named runner-up in the Best News Journalist – Senior category at the NZ Community Newspapers conference in Christchurch on June 21.
The association represents more than 80 publications from Bluff to Kaitaia, and Terry was up against journalists working on daily newspapers, as well as other weekly and fortnightly publications.
The award recognised the breadth of stories covered by the paper, and the fact that her stories were well-written and researched.
The judges commented that Hibiscus Matters covered “excellent hard news stories, people battling bureaucracy, tightly written with great sources/quotes”.
