Racing Media Awards

Entries are now open for Thoroughbred Racing SA’s Industry Awards media categories, which recognise journalists and photographers who produce outstanding racing stories and images.

The annual awards are held at the end of each racing season to honour the achievements of the State’s top horses, trainers, jockeys and apprentices and will this year take place on Saturday, August 29, at the Stamford Grand, Glenelg.

Media categories, for ‘Best Story’ and ‘Best Picture’, were first awarded in 2012 and recognise the importance of showcasing the sport in the media and celebrate the great stories told about racing in SA.

The categories will be open to all stories (print, broadcast and electronic media) and images or videos which appeared in the media between August 1, 2014 and July 31, 2015.

The ‘story’ must be a significant positive story regarding the associated activities, participants and personalities of the thoroughbred racing industry in South Australia.

It must have contributed to improved understanding of the thoroughbred racing industry in South Australia and/or highlighted new, unique or human interest elements of the industry.

‘Best Picture’ is judged on the same criteria but can be only one photograph or video, not a body of work.

The awards will be judged by a panel including a former journalist and representatives from Thoroughbred Racing SA.

In 2014, the accolade for Best Racing Story was awarded to Tom Biddington from The Advertiser, while Best Picture went to Jenny Barnes.

All entries must be submitted no later than July 31. Shortlisted candidates will be notified and invited to attend the prestigious Industry Awards ceremony.
