Noun pile of the morning

Quick, noun pile fans: What does this BBC hed mean, and how long did it take you to get there?

The inside hed is a little clearer, alas:

Australia minister calls award for prank DJ 'bad taste'An Australian minister says an award given to one of the radio DJs behind a royal prank call linked to the death of a UK nurse is "in bad taste".

I was fine with 'Kate prank call DJ' - we know who he and/or she is. Then it's just a question of the last three words, and there's some helpful claim quotes, so it's just a matter of parsing 'award' successfully. Not too bad for a six-noun pile with an adjective chaser.
