Qantas Awards

The awards are out but each outlet tends to only report on the awards they got, so I have gone to the Qantas Awards website to find a list of all winners and finalists.

Even the website makes it bloody hard though, as you have to go to a dozen different pages to compile them all. However it is worth a visit just to get to see the photos that were considered for the photography awards.

This superb photo is from overall winner Simon Baker, a freelancer.

Now I may have missed one or two, but my rough count gives the following winners amongst the well-known publications:

NZ Herald 23

The Press 11
Dominion Post 9
North & South 6
The Listener 6
Metro 6
Herald on Sunday 5

Now if we group them by type, we have:

So NZ Herald has done very well. Congrats.
