Re­porter among Queens­land’s best

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

GOLD COAST Bul­letin real es­tate re­porter Aleisha Pid­geon has been named a fi­nal­ist in the Real Es­tate In­sti­tute of Queens­land Awards for Ex­cel­lence.

Ms Pid­geon is among four fi­nal­ists vy­ing for the prom­i­nent in­dus­try award in the best me­dia re­port cat­e­gory.

REIQ me­dia and com­mu­ni­ca­tions man­ager Felic­ity Moore con­grat­u­lated the fi­nal­ists and said the cal­i­bre of their work was ex­cep­tion­ally high.

“Jour­nal­ism is a chal­leng­ing craft, re­quir­ing time to re­search the sto­ries, in­ter­view sources, shape the story, while still man­ag­ing to meet im­pos­si­bly tough dead­lines in this age of the 24-hour news cy­cle,” she said. “Th­ese out­stand­ing re­porters have ex­hib­ited ex­ten­sive knowl­edge and acu­ity about the com­plex real es­tate mar­ket and its move­ments.

“I con­grat­u­late them on their body of work and their re­lent­less drive to re­port the real es­tate news so ac­cu­rately and so well.

“This year we had the largest num­ber of en­trants, and an ex­cep­tion­ally high stan­dard of en­try, and we thank ev­ery jour­nal­ist who en­tered and the news or­gan­i­sa­tions for sup­port­ing and re­port­ing on Queens­land’s real es­tate news.”

The win­ner will be named on Fe­bru­ary 4.
