Fitzroy wins two more media awards


Fitzroy collected two media awards at the 2018 VAFA Media Awards last week, bringing the club’s total to four in two years.

In the second year of the awards (and the first marked with its own awards event), Fitzroy was awarded Best Photograph (Action) for Peter Casamento’s great Gatorade shower shot in the rooms at BSO after a big win over Williamstown (pictured), whilst Kate Nolan was awarded Best Online story (news) for a piece on Rory Angiolella’s decision to hand over the captaincy.

The awards attracted over 150 entries and Fitzroy had eight shortlisted entries in seven categories.

Congratulations to all the shortlisted entries, which included two of Phyllis Quealy’s beautiful photos for best photograph (character of the game) and two of Gabrielle Murphy’s feature stories, including a fantastic piece on the Leydon family’s long-time love and following of Fitzroy. New-comer Matty Kyroussis was also shortlisted for the Risk Care Roundup series in the category Best use of Digital Media (series). Our ‘Let There Be Light’ campaign, featuring the Fitzroy-ACU squad dancing in the dark at Ramsden Street, was shortlisted for Best use of Digital Media (campaign).
