The 2021 Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition

29 November 2021 @ 9:00 am - 14 December 2021 @ 5:00 pm AEDT


The Nikon-Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism recognise the work of photographers across a range of genres – from news and sport to portraiture and photographic essays. This exhibition lets us reflect on the year in news through the individual worldviews and skilled lenses of Australia’s best photographers.

Some of these images are the work of a split second. Others took months of research and trust-building. Photographers interact with their subjects with perhaps more intimacy than story-tellers in any other medium, and the stories they tell can move you with a single frame.

In selecting three finalists in each category, from more than 3000 images entered in 2021, the Walkley judges looked for newsworthiness, impact, creativity and technical skill. This exhibition, showcasing the 2021 finalists, encompasses a range of stories – from politicians to everyday folk, from our backyards to the furthest corners of the globe. Such is the power of photojournalism: in a frozen moment, the smallest story can be as compelling as the largest.
