Judges’ comments

This is a well written newspaper story focused on a particular issue, i.e. the army’s intention to engage in agriculture and from the perspective of a single source, i.e. an economist. However, the reporter did well to obtain one external source (GCCI) to enhance the balance.

The reporter could have indeed sought many more sources to further improve the presentation, originality and angling of the story.
