Event description

Description

Great journalism has the power to change laws, policies and lives. The news you see might be free, but it doesn’t come cheap. The Walkley Foundation works to provide the support the industry needs.

The funds raised at our inaugural dinner last year have helped us offer $50,000 in grants for Australian journalists. At this year’s dinner we’ll be announcing the successful applicants for those grants—and with your help, raising much more for an even brighter future.

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

Hosted by: Samantha Armytage, Sunrise, Seven

Featuring chair of the Walkley directors, Kerry O’Brien
