Thanks to supporters of our Public Fund for Journalism, in 2019 the Walkley Foundation will be handing out $50,000 in grants to Australian journalists.

The Foundation offers  a variety of grants to support key areas:

  • Commissioning works by individual journalists to focus on under-reported topics that are in the public interest.  These may cover areas, such as journal of record functions (courts and local politics), particularly in rural and regional communities, health, environment, indigenous affairs and gender equity.  
  • Grants for innovation in journalism
  • Freedom of Information requests

Further details on grants rounds will be available in early 2019. Please subscribe to our newsletter to stay up-to-date with information on these upcoming grant rounds.
