Nikon–Walkley Press Photography
- Macquarie Street foyer
On display until 14 December 2014
Come and see what Australia’s best press photographers have been up to.
Showcasing 89 shortlisted images, the annual Nikon–Walkley Photographic Awards — the pinnacle of achievement for Australian press photographers — are judged by a panel of senior photographers and picture editors who represent the industry.
The 2014 exhibition encompasses a range of stories — from politicians to everyday folk, from our backyards to the furthest corners of the globe. Such is the power of photojournalism: in a frozen moment, the smallest story can be as compelling as the largest.
