Fairfax’s Year 12 with Cancer: Gabbie’s Story wins Asian media award

The Society of Publishers in Asia has announced the winners of the 2018 SOPA Awards.

Late last week the Society of Publishers in Asia announced the winners of the 2018 SOPA Awards, and The Sydney Morning Herald was a winner in Group B for Excellence in Journalistic innovation for Year 12 with Cancer: Gabbie’s Story.

The annual SOPA Awards attract entrants of the calibre of The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Associated Press, Reuters, Bloomberg, South China Morning Post, The Economist, Financial Times, Time, BBC News Online and ABC News Online.

The judges’ comment for The SMH win said: “The short, graphic novel-type vignettes brought readers into the heart of Gabbie’s struggles and experience of fighting cancer in a powerfully intimate way – and one which few 3,000-word stories could have matched.”
