April 4 — May 3

The Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance (MEAA), the union and industry advocate for Australia’s journalists, is once again joining with the Walkley Foundation and the International Federation of Journalists for the annual #30Days of Press Freedom campaign.

In addition to the year-round, industry-wide press freedom advocacy that MEAA spearheads, the #30Days campaign tells the story of press freedom in the lead up to World Press Freedom Day on May 3.

The #30Days campaign is an initiative run by members, for members. If you have an idea for an event or an action that you think would be a perfect way to highlight the ongoing fight for press freedom in Australia and our region, we want to hear from you.
