In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
Veteran Affairs Minister slams Woolies' Anzac campaign
The supermarket giant's commemoration website invited social media users to share war tributes under the slogan 'Fresh in our Memories'.
Minister Ronaldson said the campaign was "inappropriate" and an insult to the memory of Australian diggers.
He also added that the company did not seek permission from the Veteran Affairs Department in order to use the word 'Anzac', which is liable under law for fines of up to $50,000.
Woolworths took the Fresh in our Memories website down late yesterday.
