Logan City Council’s 2018/2019 Annual Report has been judged the best in the Asia-Pacific region, taking out the top accolade at the recent Australasian Reporting Awards.

The report was judged against those of top-tier companies and organisations from across Australasia, who received gold level awards.

They included Wesfarmers Limited, the ABC, National Australia Bank and several other South-east Queensland councils including Brisbane, Redland and the Gold Coast.

It is the first time Logan City Council has won the coveted overall Report of the Year prize, after achieving five consecutive gold awards since 2015.

City of Logan Mayor Darren Power said Council’s annual reporting process was thorough with staff committed to providing accessible and detailed public accounts of the organisation’s activities.

“In reaching their decision, the ARA judges recognised Council’s report had included a particularly challenging and difficult period,” Cr Power said.

“The open and honest way in which we reported on those challenges helped us to achieve the distinction of Report of the Year.

“The Australasian Reporting Awards set the standard for best global practice in annual reporting.

“This is a high honour for Logan City Council and in particular, our Business Performance Management Team.”
