THE Daily Examiner's photographer Adam Hourigan has been named the winner of one of Australia's most prestigious media awards.

Adam took out the top prize for Community/Regional photography in the Nikon-Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism.

His portfolio of five photographs was lauded by the judges who commented:

''Adam Hourigan shows strong skills and creativity in a body of work that is both emotive and well-executed. From horse racing at the Clarence River Jockey Club to a lucky escape on the Pacific Highway and a 60th wedding anniversary snuggle in the cinema, Adam's portfolio shows his commitment to providing a small regional newspaper with exceptional imagery.''

We will have a longer story about Adam's achievement in tomorrow's The Daily Examiner, and his award-winning portfolio will feature in Weekend magazine on October 25.
