“I was really impressed by the quality of entries this year. The submissions were all pertinent and compelling. From a judging perspective it made our task very difficult but it was a pleasure to see that journalists have understood that they are vital in the fight against alcohol abuse and their messages and approaches need to be strong in order to tackle the problem,” says Chris Moerdyk, one of the judges.
