WIN News congratulates Imogen Elliott, recipient of the 2022 LGBTQ Positive Media Award at the Australian Pride In Sport Awards.

Celebrating efforts in making sport more inclusive of LGBTQ people, Pride In Sport’s prestigious awards named Elliott for its top national media honour at a ceremony in Melbourne on Wednesday.

The LGBTQ Positive Media Award was based on Elliott’s reportage of Liberal Senator for Tasmania Claire Chandler’s Save Women’s Sport bill. Their coverage on WIN News Tasmania has explored the significance of the bill for the transgender community and the implications for grassroots sport in Tasmania. Elliott’s questioning of Prime Minister on the issue attracted national attention.

“It was a fantastic, inspiring evening and all the finalists were incredible. I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me and my reporting”

WIN News Tasmania News Director Alex Johnston acknowledged the achievement.

“We’re enormously proud of Elliott and the award is thoroughly deserved. Elliott’s reporting has contributed greatly to an important national discussion on a contentious issue. Their work is always fearless but fair.”

Launched in 2008, the Australian Pride in Sport Awards acknowledges achievements around the inclusion of people with diverse genders and sexualities in Australian sport. The event officially recognises smaller clubs, LGBTQ community sport initiatives, coaches, role models, media outlets, and allies for their contributions to this space.
