Photo is top award winner

Borgward won the Features Photograph of the Year (Rural/Regional Suburban category) for the incredible shot ‘Organ Donors Needed’ she took for the Courier‘s Community Newspaper Group sister paper Southern Gazette.

The photo was of Como father Peter, who received a transplant in February.

– The Courier was also named as a finalist in the McCusker Centre for Action on Alcohol and Youth awards this week.

The newspaper is a finalist in the Media in Action category, with the winner to be announced at a ceremony at Curtin University in November.

The Action on Alcohol Awards recognise individuals, organisations and initiatives that have made a significant contribution to reducing harm from alcohol among young people.
