The REIQ is calling for media entries to its Best Real Estate Media Report category in the annual Awards for Excellence. 

The Best Real Estate Media Report is designed to showcase the best in real estate reporting and it is not necessary to include a mention of the REIQ. 

Now in its ninth year, the award has become a highly regarded honour among the state’s property journalists. Previous winners include journalists Michelle Hele (News Corp), Matt Cranston (AFR), Ellen Lutton (Domain), and Nicola McDougall (Bricks and Mortar Media). 

Entries are welcome from trade and mainstream media. 

Entrants must demonstrate a detailed understanding of the Queensland real estate market (not limited to residential), including elements of data and metrics that are used to measure the Queensland property market. A demonstrated knowledge of the economic conditions within which the market operates is also required. 

Entry conditions: 
Each entry must include two reports from different dates of publication/broadcast. A group entry may include work of up to five people, with all names included on the entry form. 
Reports do not need to mention the REIQ. 

Submissions must have been published or broadcast in Queensland during the period 1 November 2017 and 1 November 2018 (inclusive).
