Southland Times journalist Brendon Egan is back in the winner's circle.
Egan was one of two winners, along with TV3 reporter Ashlee Tulloch, of the Sir John Wells Sports Journalism Scholarship, which was announced at the Sir Terry McLean sports journalism awards in Auckland last night.
An initiative introduced in 2009, the scholarship provides two young journalists the opportunity to spend time in Wellington and Auckland with key sports leaders and organisations to gain a wider understanding of sports governance in New Zealand.
Earlier this year Egan won the Bell Journalism Prize, an award for young journalists in Otago and Southland, which will allow him to travel to the United States in the new year.
Egan was also a finalist in the print feature category, with that award going to The New Zealand Herald's Dana Johansen, who also claimed the New Zealand Sports Journalist Association Supreme Sports Journalist of the Year award.
