What Price Would You Pay? A Conversation about why journalism matters
What Price Would You Pay?
A Conversation about why journalism matters, presented by the Walkley Foundation and RMIT
Journalists work relentlessly to give the most vulnerable people in society a voice, but at what price? The Walkley Foundation developed a national public awareness campaign, developed in partnership with Naked Communications, themed “What Price Would You Pay?”, asking 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.
At this event you’ll hear from award-winning journalists in person, about what it takes to make great journalism and why this work matters.
