Finalists announced for the 67th Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism – The Walkley Foundation


 
The Walkley Foundation is delighted to announce the finalists for the 67th annual Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism.
The Walkley Awards, Australia’s pre-eminent national journalism awards, recognise and reward the best in the craft and set the industry standard for excellence.  
Shona Martyn, CEO of the Walkley Foundation, said: “Our hearty congratulations to this impressive array of finalists who have risen to the top in hotly-contested categories in a big year for news and current affairs. This is work that makes a difference, that creates change, holds the powerful to account and holds a mirror up to our nation and its culture and our world. The 2022 finalists exemplify the best of Australian journalism from writers, photographers, cartoonists, production teams and documentary makers. We look forward to celebrating the winners in Sydney on November 17.”
Finalists are selected by panels of peers on the basis of overall merit and journalistic excellence. The Walkley Foundation encourages a diversity of entries from journalists around Australia. This year we received 1304 entries.
Judges for this first round are selected by the Walkley Judging Board. You can find information about the Walkley Awards judging process here and the Terms and Conditions of the Awards here.   
The Walkley Foundation has a mechanism for dealing with any conflict of interest, actual or perceived, that may arise during the judging process. The guidelines are based on the principle that all actual conflicts of interest are to be avoided and that even a perceived conflict may be damaging to all parties. You can read more about the conflict guidelines here.
All Walkley Award winners will be announced at a gala dinner at the ICC in Sydney on Thursday November 17
The winners of the Nikon Photography Prizes are announced below, along with the list of finalists for all the Walkley Awards.
