It’s official – the Colac Herald provides unrivalled coverage of community football.
The Colac Herald’s sports team has won the Best Print or Online Coverage Non-Daily category of AFL Victoria’s annual Community Media Awards.
The Herald’s team includes sports editor Ben Martin, reporter Alex Baird and photographer Tammy Brown.
The award had nominees from across the state. The Colac Herald won based on the strength of its coverage of football across all age groups.
The Herald’s football coverage is not just match reports and previews, but in-depth profiles of players, coverage of football politics, and sensitive reporting when tragedy or adversity strikes the football community.
Our coverage of community football runs all year, featuring all the biggest news from the Colac District Football League, Geelong Football League, Hampden Football League and Geelong District Football League.
Our reporting also covers emerging young stars in the TAC Cup, exports in the VFL and AFL, Auskick and umpires.
Two images by Tammy Brown were also finalists in the Best Action Photo category.
The Colac Herald thanks the Colac and district football community, players, officials and their families for its support and assistance in our award-winning reporting.
