The winner of the prestigious Tony Staley Award was Faten El Dana OAM, and Sydney-based Muslim station 2MFM. The station received the accolade for its vision, strength of management, creative programming and benefit to its community.

The award is named for the Minister for Post and Telecommunications in the Fraser government who, in the 1970s, argued successfully for the establishment of community broadcasting.
