Walkley Media Talks: What price would you pay?

What price would you pay?

Carrying the trauma of reporting on death, destruction and abuse. Being pursued through the courts to reveal a confidential source. Going up against the biggest institutions in the country to reveal the truth.

Journalists work relentlessly to give the most vulnerable people in society a voice, but at what price? The Walkley Foundation is running a national public awareness campaign, developed in partnership with Naked Communications, across TV, print, online and outdoor advertising.

The campaign is themed “What Price Would You Pay?” and asks Australians to re-evaluate the price they’d pay for quality journalism that impacts everyday lives. It highlights the price journalists pay, from legal pressure to death threats, and features award-winning journalists. Hear from award-winning journalists in person, about what it takes to make great journalism and why this work matters.

Speakers include:

  • Sarah Dingle, Walkley Award-winning reporter and presenter, Audio Current Affairs, ABC (nominated for 2019 Media Diversity Australia Award & the Our Watch Award)
  • Nina Funnell, award-winning freelance journalist (nominated for 2019 Freelance Journalist of the Year)
