“If you spent the last decade running wire stories or filler ... or if you supplemented your online presence with Outbrain and Taboola and a bunch of clickbait content because you couldn’t come up with a real strategy, don’t expect readers to pay you.”

What was your first job as a journalist?

Editorial assistant (researcher, copykid) for the Australian Financial Review's bureau in Brisbane.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes! It's probably the best (only) skill I learned at high school. I also wrote several novels on a typewriter when I was 12.

What does it mean to be a journalist?

Giving a voice to people who don't have one, and revealing injustice to people who didn't know about it.

Investigative Reporters and Editors Award

2014 - Multiplatform, large
Judges' comments: "ICIJ produced a tremendously ambitious international reporting effort that is awe-inspiring by every measure. A team of more than 100 journalists mined a collection of millions of pages of leaked documents exposing how wealthy people worldwide use offshore havens to hide fortunes and shrink their tax bills. The investigation found that major financial institutions have served as accomplices, devising ways to park assets in front companies in the British Virgin Islands and elsewhere. ICIJ, a project of the Center for Public Integrity, told the story in myriad ways, including a searchable database of offshore companies and trusts. The project prompted high profile resignations and civil and criminal investigations on four continents."
