The Walkley Foundation, with the support of the NSW Government, will focus on the importance of regional journalism by hosting two key events in Tamworth: The 66th Walkley Awards on February 11, 2022, and a Regional Journalism Summit on February 10.
Walkley Regional Journalism Summit
10 February 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11 February 2022 @ 10:00 pm AEDT$53.84
At the Summit we will be painting a comprehensive picture of regional media in Australia at this moment in time – bringing together voices from the industry, the latest research from across the nation, and case studies from independent and innovative regional news outlets. We are partnering with The Northern Daily Leader and the ABC and its regional network to amplify the summit, and The Drum will broadcast “on the road” from the event. We thank all our partners listed below for their support and commitment to regional journalism.
The Summit will explore the issues facing regional communities, and the importance of local journalists in telling regional stories. Held at Tamworth Town Hall, it will be open to the public and streamed live, bringing the community together around their journalists and amplifying the impact of regional journalism.
So how can you get involved? Tickets are available now, including special bundles to attend the Walkley Awards as well as the Summit. Can’t join us in Tamworth? The sessions will be streamed live and free on our website.
