The ABC's Anna MacDonald has won the 2012 Quill Award for Best Regional or Rural Affairs Report in any Medium.

MacDonald's report for 7.30 Vic investigated regional doctors' concerns about some country communities being "flooded" by practitioners trained overseas.

Judges' statement

The report explains a new business model that takes doctors with limited qualifications and packages them in medical clinics across regional Victoria. 

This well researched report exposes a new element in the gap between city and country medical services.

Highly commended

Highly commended for the award were The Age's Melissa Fyfe & Royce Millar and the ABC's Gloria Kalache.
