Webstar 2018 Magazine Media Awards

I was fairly gobsmacked to be named one of three finalists for Best Journalist (Current Affairs, Business & Trade) in these awards, held on September 6. The stories I entered were my New Zealand Geographic features on cannabis, robots and honey, all very different topics but all involving lots of great people, interesting ideas and travel. 

My fellow finalists are Joanna Wane and Donna Chisholm, two writers I've long admired, so that old cliche is true - I am really thrilled just to be in their company.  Now I'm figuring out how to come up with something passing for black tie, which will admittedly make a nice change from my regular freelancing slippers.
