The Charmaine Dragun Memorial Award

Young journalists, photographers, bloggers and contributors are invited to nominate for the Charmaine Dragun Memorial Award.

This award recognises an outstanding journalist, photographer, blogger or media contributor under the age of 25 who has committed to fair and balanced reporting on young people or youth issues.

The award acknowledges the role the media play in forming public opinion about young people and youth issues in our community. The awards encourage the media to take a lead by responsibly reporting on young people and youth issues.

Charmaine Dragun was a recipient of a WA Youth Media Award for an outstanding journalist under the age of 25, and this Memorial Award has been created in her honour, and is supported by the Dragun Family.
