Young Walkley Online Journalist of the Year 2012

“Miranda Grant sets a wonderful example for online and broadcast journalists in her sustained coverage of a community devastated by Queensland floods. She drives citizen journalism forward by not only collecting and editing user-generated content but by teaching community members how to create it. Her use of innovative video demonstrates a deep understanding of the online medium and how best to present digital story telling.”
