All three have won the annual Tony Dunkerley Sport Writer Award – an award determined by five Panellists who marked the sport articles.
Writing sport for Christian Today New Zealand involves a sport article once every 5 weeks. The advantages are that CT International has Facebook following of 4.6m around the world = it is a voluntary but it provides a ‘by-line’, name recognition and moreover great on your career CV with an international column.
