Laura Gartry

Digital Producer, Australian Broadcasting Corporation

Laura Gartry is an award-winning digital producer for the investigative documentary program Four Corners. She specialises in visual storytelling and devising the most engaging ways to tell public interest stories.

In 2023 she undertook a major review of ABC News digital output and resourcing, making recommendations to inform the organisation's future strategy. During this project, she consulted with more than 20 teams and presented to the ABC Board. Laura has also completed an intensive Women & Leadership Australia management course on a scholarship.

Laura has produced and edited many in-depth digital productions including the interactive 'Hooked' on video gaming addiction which won an international 'Society for News Design' award in 2021. The immersive video piece 'Black Summer' on Australia's unpreceded bushfires won the national 2020 Walkley Award for Production in conjunction with the Four Corners episode. She has also pitched and managed two crowdsource projects which generated thousands of responses from the public.

Laura has worked as a TV News reporter and video journalist for ABC News across the country uncovering political conflicts of interest and church cover ups. She has also reported on breaking news, politics, courts, natural disasters, and royal visits.

Her project will look at the discoverability and prominence of public interest journalism.
