NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Minister for Multiculturalism Ray Williams announced the winners of the 2017 Premier’s Multicultural Media Awards on August 30, 2017 at Waterview in Bicentennial Park, Sydney.

Ground-breaking stories reporting on the devastating impact of domestic violence, a digital journey of an endangered Indigenous language, and personal stories of Italian migrants working on Australian farms were among the winning entries.

“I congratulate the winners for reporting on these important stories that often remain unheard in mainstream media,” Berejiklian said.

“We acknowledge the tireless work of multicultural media professionals who are committed to keeping their communities informed and engaged.”

Ray Williams while speaking on the occasion said that the winners demonstrated outstanding reporting on multicultural affairs.

“One of the great strengths of our harmonious multicultural society is the variety and quality of our multicultural media outlets who serve their communities,” Williams said.

Endre Csapo received the Lifetime Achievement Award for 50 years of service to the Australian Hungarian community as a journalist and editor of several Hungarian publications.
