The twenty third annual SA & NT Rural Media Awards are the pinnacle of Rural Media South Australia’s year.  Celebrating the craft of rural journalism and photography, the 2018 Awards represent excellence and achievement.  Combined with the RMSA Christmas luncheon, the afternoon of Friday 7th December will be a very enjoyable way to network with your professional colleagues.

In addition to the principal Rural Journalist and Rural Photographer of the Year, there will be presentations for the Best Rural Journalist in the categories of print, audio/radio, video/television, regional print and digital/online.  The “Best Rural Journalist - Regional Print Award” is offered due to overwhelming interest in the awards from regionally based journalists who report for locally produced country papers.

Awards for the Best Rural Photographer in each of three categories: production, people and nature/landscape will also be presented, in addition to the award category of “Best Rural Regional Photojournalist”.  The Show Society Foundation is supporting the Best Royal Adelaide Show Story and the Best Royal Adelaide Show Photograph Awards.

The cost of this Christmas function has been maintained at the level of previous years and will include all drinks – beer, soft drinks & fruit juice.  Premium wine from the Royal Adelaide Wine Show will be served courtesy of the RA&HS.

A bumper raffle will be conducted to support the ongoing activities of RMSA.  Corporate and private sponsors are currently being invited to donate items for the raffle.  To donate, contact RMSA Secretary, Bob Snewin: (
