Batchelor Institute media course alumni and broadcaster Maxwell Tasman has taken out two major awards at the recent National Remote Indigenous Media Festival.

Mr Tasman, who completed his Certificate III in Media (Radio) this year, currently broadcasts from his community of Lajamanu over the PAW network (Pintubi Anmatjere Warlpiri Media and Communications).

Every year remote Indigenous media organisations nominate a remote Indigenous broadcasting service (RIBS) for an award. This year Maxwell won the Best RIBS Operator Award Paw Media.

He also won the John Macumba Indigenous Media Operator of the Year Award, one of the three major awards of the night. The award is named after one of the founders of Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA), who is a major figure in the remote broadcasting industry.

Batchelor Institute has a strong alumni of media students that work in both mainstream, Indigenous and remote broadcasting. Congratulations to Mr Tasman for his achievements.
