The Walkley Foundation

The Walkley Foundation is at the heart of the Australian media. In addition to celebrating and promoting the most skilful, impactful and captivating Australian stories, our role is to foster resilience and growth in the industry in practical, measurable ways. The Walkley Awards were founded by Sir William Gaston Walkley in 1956. Now, the annual Walkley Awards are the pinnacle of achievement for every Australian journalist. Peer-judged and renowned for integrity, they recognise the impact of journalism and build public trust in good reporting.
