The ABC's Heather Ewart has won the 2012 Quill Award for Best TV Current Affairs/Feature under 10 Minutes.

Ewart's report for 7.30 highlighted the continuing issues of workplace bullying.

Judges' statement

A young man who got his dream job after overcoming obstacles was turned away after nine days by a horrific case of workplace bullying. Ewart’s sensitive investigation into the heart breaking issue of workplace bullying
revealed the extent of the problem across the country.

Her interview with a brave victim from Shepparton led to Worksafe re-opening their investigation as well as the DPP.

Highly commended

Martin King of the Nine Network's A Current Affair program was highly commended by the award's judges.

Judges' statement

It was an extremely close call to separate Martin’s entry with the winner. He told a powerful story of a young woman’s desperate plea for life to a triple 0 call taker.
