Police Journal (Silver Winner)

The Killing of Ting Fang
Brett Williams


Judging comments:
This gritty feature keeps readers moving from its strong lead to satisfying finish. The writer, a former police officer and sole editor and manager of the journal, uses a frank, clear writing style to steer his audience through the fascinating process of deduction in the investigation of the murder of a Sydney sex worker. He skillfully combines this with pull-quotes and evidence photos that push the story along and, importantly, a heartrending sidebar that brings the victim to life. What a masterfully packaged — albeit, tragic — read.
