Mark Roy is a journalist based in Darwin, Australia.
A writer, photographer and filmmaker, Roy has a decade of experience as editor and journalist on mastheads in the farthest reaches of the Australian continent.
From the Northern Guardian in the westernmost point of Western Australia, to the Albany Advertiser in the south, the Torres News on the Papua New Guinea border, and The West Arnhem Wire in the Aboriginal lands of the Top End, Roy enjoys pulling together colourful community newspapers on deadline.
In 2009 he was lifestyle editor at The Phnom Penh Post, and oversaw the launch of Phnom Penh’s 7Days magazine.
Roy maintains a connection with Cambodian lifestyle and culture, with a recent feature article published in The South East Asia Globe.
A passionate advocate for film photography, Roy co-wrote a short, troppo-noir movie, Sumatra, for the Darwin International Film Festival in September, choosing to shoot the 10-minute film on Kodak black-and-white Super-8 film stock.
