Induction to the esteemed status of “Rural Media Icon” is a rare honour and the highest that can be bestowed by Rural Media and Communicators SA & NT.  The decision to elevate an individual to this status is never taken lightly.

Based on their meritorious contribution to the craft of rural journalism and agricultural communications over careers spanning many decades, John Illsley and Elizabeth Harfull will be conferred with the honour of being inducted as Icons of the Rural Media sector at a special Adelaide Showground cocktail function on the evening of Friday 6th August.

As leaders within the industry, Elizabeth Harfull and John Illsley have long been considered to be ambassadors for rural media.  Others have often judged themselves against them.

The bestowal of this esteemed status will position them as part of a very small and elite group of people who have been vested with the honour of “Rural Media Icon”.  The last time this honour was bestowed on a person occurred more than three years ago.

Following the inductions, RMC SA/NT will conduct its 2021 AGM and cocktail function.  A warm welcome is extended to anyone who would like to witness the induction of John and Elizabeth - family, friends or colleagues.
