It is the second year he has won this award category and is a previous overall winner.

Other category winners were Rebecca Macfie (features) from the NZ Listener and Matt Nippert (news) from the NZ Herald.

Ms Macfie was named overall winner for her feature on Fonterra’s milk price woes. 
Her prize is a five-day digital journalism course at the University of California, Berkeley.
