Do your part to cheer on great journalism in Australia by supporting the Walkley Foundation.
“Australia’s journalists know that winning a Walkley is a reason to celebrate. It confers prestige, prize money and a handsome trophy. It is the recognition by one’s peers that special initiative deserves a special reward. To the winner it means that all those years of training and being barked at by demanding editors were not entirely in vain.”
- John Hurst, author of The Walkley Awards
Sponsorship: Profile & Opportunity
Sponsoring the Walkleys offers the opportunity to be associated with excellence in the public and powerful area of the media, as well as providing direct access to nearly 11,000 opinion makers and the progressive positioning of your company among senior commentators.
This is a rare chance to sponsor a prestigious national media program. Comprising a tiered sponsorship structure, there are no other sponsorships in this country that singly show a company’s support of professional excellence in the mainstream media in such a prestigious and widereaching journalistic forum.
The integrity and exclusivity of the Walkley program is beyond comparison to other media partnerships.
The Walkley Awards is Australia’s largest media gathering, providing sponsors with access and networking opportunities at the “invitation only” event.
Walkley Award Partnerships are a great way for your company to build up awareness of your corporate brand or profile with the media and showing your company’s commitment to excellence both in the media and your own industry.
Make it part of your company's corporate relations strategy
Walkley sponsors are given the opportunity to network with senior media at exclusive Walkley luncheons with senior editors and producers as well as Walkley judges and other key media at Walkley nomination events.
Every year, winners are promoted extensively to the media. Walkley partners are promoted in conjunction with major publicity and promotional materials for the Walkley Awards, including The Walkley Magazine, the official entry form and the Walkley website.
Walkley promotion goes directly to members of the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance and through major promotion throughout the Australian media.
Your company representatives have the opportunity to host guests at the gala presentation ceremony and will join us on stage to present the winner with his/her trophy.
The Walkley Awards program offers sponsor benefits throughout the year, throughout the country and throughout the Australian media.
