2022 Walkley Awards presented in Sydney.


The 67th Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism were presented in Sydney last night.

The Walkley Foundation’s chief executive Shona Martyn says “This has been a huge year for news with war in Ukraine, horrific floods and a federal election. Australian journalists, photographers and camera operators have excelled in their coverage of these major events, sometimes putting their lives on the line.”

She says this year’s best journalism also includes stories that were uncovered by old school legwork, tips, hard work, hunches and painstaking and considered investigation.

“I congratulate all the winners and finalists for their recognition in the 67th Walkley Awards. And thank our sponsors and partners for their support.”

Chair of the Walkley Judging Board, Michael Brissenden, was impressed by the range and depth of this year’s winning entries, making it a difficult task for judges.

“2022 has been another cracker of a year for Australian journalism. It is our mission at the Walkley Foundation to celebrate and support great Australian journalism and 2022 certainly hasn’t disappointed.”

The 2022 Gold Walkley was won by Anne Connolly, Ali Russell and Stephanie Zillman, ABC, Four Corners for ‘State Control.’
