Reporter up for youth gong
A Geraldton reporter has been named a finalist for a State award aimed at recognising outstanding young journalists, photographers, bloggers and media contributors.
The Geraldton Guardian journalist Francesca Mann has been recognised for the leading youth media accolade, the Youth Affairs Council of WA’s Charmaine Dragun Memorial Award, after also having made the short list in 2017.
Last year, the media award was won by former Geraldton Guardian journalist Letitia Busniak.
This year, Mann submitted a profile story from the Artist of the Week series — which is published in Tuesday editions of The Geraldton Guardian.
She will attend the WA Youth Awards ceremony in Perth on Friday, where the winner of the Charmaine Dragun Memorial Award will be announced, along with the winners of a number of other youth award categories.
