About 100 journalists covered the historic New Caledonian independence referendum last weekend, with media from Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand and the Pacific, as well as France and Tahiti, sending crews.
A spokesperson for the French High Commission said 100 journalists had been accredited for the referendum – 40 of them foreign journalists.
Local journalists also filed reports for Radio Canada and RTBF (Belgium).
Featured in these images are some of the news teams at work, including SBS World News reporter Stefan Armbruster and SBS executive producer Christophe Mallet who presented some of the best reporting on the event.
