Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition

When

Mondays to Thursdays, 9am to 8pm Fridays, 9am to 5pm Weekends, 10am to 5pm Friday 20 October 2023 to Sunday 21 January

See the winners and finalists selected from the Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism, celebrating the achievements of Australian photographers across a range of genres, from news and sports to portraiture and visual essays.

The Walkley Awards have recognised excellence across all media since 1956, when the first awards were presented in five categories. As the news industry has evolved, they have kept pace, and the awards now comprise 30 categories.

The 2023 finalists featured in this exhibition encompasses a range of subjects – from politicians to everyday folk, from our backyards to the furthest corners of the globe. Such is the power of photojournalism: in a moment of stillness, each voice says, “This is my story. I am here.”
