Icy expedition made Marian a winner

SYDNEY Morning Herald journalist Marian Wilkinson has been recognised at the Eureka awards for scientific study and journalism, presented annually by the Australian Museum.

Ms Wilkinson, the SMH’s environment editor, picked up the Eureka Prize for Environmental Journalism, for work done for her newspaper, the smh.com.au website, and also the ABC’s Four Corners programs. She shared the award with the ABC’s Neale Maude, Kate Wild and Ruth Fogarty.

The group combined to create The Tipping Point, a multi-faceted report on global warming conducted in the Arctic.

The Eureka website describes the group’s “hazardous journey to the Arctic, during the summer ice melt, to communicate the enormity of what is happening and the urgency of the challenges we face”.
