Get your fix of Australia’s best journalism this Thursday November 28

It’s the week we’ve all been waiting for. A fantastic crop of 2019 Walkley finalists have been selected by their peers as the best journalists of the year, and this Thursday night we’ll find out the winners. A shiny, pointy trophy is just the icing on the cake; the real reward is reporting stories that make a difference, hold the powerful to account and shine a light on injustice. 

Join in as we celebrate journalism this Thursday November 28. Journalists and media identities will gather in the Ballroom of the ICC in Sydney for the gala event, as Walkley Awards are presented in 30 categories. It’s the first time the Walkley Awards have been held in Sydney since 2014, and the beginning of a two-year partnership with the NSW Government

If you haven’t scored an invitation, you can follow all the action from home thanks to our live broadcast partner Sky News. The awards will be broadcast live on Sky News Extra Foxtel channel 604 and streamed live on walkleys.com from 7:00pm AEDT (hover over the video below and select the full screen icon at the bottom right).
