WRL shines in 2016 Faculty Awards

UNSW's Tricia Tesoriero and Wilson da Silva, with WRL’s William Glamore & Ian TurnerWRL has received the 2016 Dean’s Media Award for Story of the Year - the “June Superstorm”! Which received massive coverage during the 2016 East Coast Low.

If this wasn’t enough, the 2016 Dean’s Media Award for Outstanding Valour was awarded to our very own Grantley Smith (for spending two days standing in a wave tank with a floating car), for the story “Floodwaters can turn cars into deathtraps”, and the runner-up for this same award given to Mitchell Harley (for his multi-channel media presence during the June storm).

Congratulations to each and everyone at WRL, for your individual contributions that were collectively recognised by these Faculty awards today. 

Onwards and upwards for 2017!
