The Walkley Awards are the highest honour in Australian journalism, celebrating excellence across all media. Since 1956, when the first Walkleys were bestowed in five categories, the awards have grown to more than 30 categories including documentary film and non-fiction books.
The Nikon–Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism recognise the work of photographers across a range of genres, from news and sport to portraiture and photographic essays. This exhibition lets us reflect on the news through the individual world views and skilled lenses of some of Australia’s best photographers.
