As well as Website of the Year, Stuff mastheads the Waikato Times and The Press both received the accolade of Newspaper of the Year for their respective circulation categories.

Sharon Murdoch, who produces cartoons for The Press and other Stuff mastheads, was named Cartoonist of the Year yet again, following wins in the category at the 2016 and 2017 awards.

“Sharon is a remarkable cartoonist. She makes such an amazing contribution to our journalism and is an expert in her craft,” says Stevens.

Stuff received five wins in the photography and videography categories, including Photographer of the Year for Iain McGregor.

In the journalism and reporting categories, Stuff received seven wins, including the award for Best Team Investigation, which went to the Stuff Circuit team - made up of Paula Penfold, Toby Longbottom, Eugene Bingham and Phil Johnson - for their groundbreaking investigation, The Valley.
