Description

There has never been a more important time to fund journalism. This is why we’re bringing together Australia’s best true storytellers for a night devoted to fundraising for great Australian journalism and the impact it has on all of our lives. In 2018 the Walkley Foundation is taking a new strategic direction, broadening its work and scaling up its programs to provide the support the industry needs.

We owe it to future generations of Australians.

Join us and show your support for journalism that makes a difference.

Hosted by: Melissa Doyle, Seven
