Daniel Oakes

Daniel Oakes of the ABC has won the Quill for Best TV Or Video News Report.

Judges' statement

Dan Oakes' report on the arrest of a suspect in the Siriyakorn 'Bung' Siriboon case was a genuine exclusive with a high level of detail that was followed up by all other media. His story had intimate knowledge of Victoria Police's investigation into one of its most baffling cases and was the result of great contacts and persistence to follow the story through over a long period of time.

Highly commended

Highly commended were Brendan Roberts, Seven News and Mark O’Brien and Dermot O’Brien, Network Ten.

Judges' statements

Brendan Roberts was on the spot in India for the first court appearance of killer driver Puneet Puneet. It was the first time we had seen and heard from Puneet since he had fled Melbourne. Brendan's story involved investigative skill to track down Puneet in a difficult environment in a remote part of India.

Mark O'Brien secured the first intimate interview with Jill Meagher's parents, giving viewers a true insight into their ongoing grief and revealed new struggles after their daughter's murder.
