The Australasian Religious Press Association’s “Citation” for their 2021 Publication of the year award -
“Eureka Street has an authenticity of voice, and fidelity to the Gospel. Grounded in the social teachings of the Catholic Church, it addresses issues both national and international, and gives readers access to some of Australia’s the best public intellectuals.
“The editions submitted for judging contained adversity of commentary on for example, Covid, Alan Jones, and the Vietnam Moratorium.
“The articles are invariably thoughtful and well written (and edited!). The design is clean and clear, and makes effective use of hyper-links to sources.
“The critical edge to Eureka Street offers a necessary critique (and a corrective) to much of the rubbish we read in so-called mainstream media in Australia.”
Dr Mark Tronson of Press Service International says, as an avid reader of online news, “Eureka St is the one Christian based publication that is quoted from time to time in the secular press.
“Each year ARPA provides a meeting place whether in person or online (Covid) where editors and writers in Christian media meet and gather insights from each other.
“It is always a joy of mine to catch up with John Sandeman, the founding editor of Eternity magazine and the 2020 Gutenberg awardee.”
