Mya Kordic, a young journalist from ABC Kimberley, is the recipient of this year’s Women in Media Western Australia Mentoring Scholarship.

The scholarship includes travel, accommodation and access to the Women in Media National Conference, which is taking place this year in Sydney on 9 August. 

The Women in Media National Conference is an exciting opportunity for networking, professional growth and hearing from the best, brightest and trailblazing women across Australia’s media industry.

Ms Kordic said it was a privilege to receive this year’s scholarship and is looking forward to networking with senior female journalists and hearing industry leaders discuss their experiences in storytelling.

“Working for the ABC in the Kimberley region as a young journalist in my first posting has been an incredible experience so far and I am excited to further my knowledge and connections at this conference,” she said.

“I would like to thank Women in Media for this opportunity of professional development and I look forward to applying what I have learnt at the conference to my work in Broome.”

There was a competitive field of applicants for the scholarship this year and Women in Media WA congratulate three finalists: runners-up Razanne Al-Abdeli, who recently graduated from Curtin University, and Erin Horrigan of WA Health, and the 2024 recipient, Mya Kordic.

The judging panel said the finalists are “exceptional young women” who are passionate about their work and expanding their careers, and each had submitted highly competitive applications. 

The Women in Media WA Scholarship was judged by an expert panel including: Natalie Bonjolo of The West Australian; Nadia Mitsopolous of ABC Perth; and Carina Tan-Van Baren of Purple. 

Women in Media WA has been providing this scholarship opportunity for young women to attend the annual National Conference for many years in support of Western Australian talent so they can connect and learn alongside industry leaders to expand their knowledge, networks and career pathways. 

The scholarship application process was open to women, aged 30 years or under, currently living in WA. Applicants could be either final-year tertiary students aspiring to enter the media, public relations, marketing or communications industry, or early career professionals within these industries.

Women in Media WA thanks everyone who applied and the judges for their help in selecting the winner, Mya Kordic.
