Heads up TV News and current affairs folk… entries are now open for journalism’s 2020 Walkley Awards.
Chair of the Walkley Judging Board, Lenore Taylor, said, “From the Bushfires to COVID-19, 2020 has already proven to be a year we will never forget and more than ever it’s a year that has highlighted the important and amazing work that has been done by Australian journalists under some seriously difficult circumstances.
“We’ve strengthened some of the category descriptions to make it easier for you to identify exactly what the judges are looking for and to also help make it clear what you can submit in the All Media Production and Innovation categories. It’s now time to put these stories forward as we open entries for the 65th Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism.”
The Walkleys recognise excellence in Australian journalism across 30 categories, on all platforms including photojournalism, documentary, non-fiction books and cartoons. As always, digital journalism can be entered into any category.
The Walkley Awards are open to all Australian media for work published on any platform between September 1, 2019 and August 31, 2020. Entries close at midnight on Monday, August 31, 2020.
