  • Nikon-Walkley Photojournalism 2023 Exhibition

Nikon-Walkley Photojournalism 2023 Exhibition

Featuring the winners and finalists from the Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism. The awards celebrate the achievements of Australian photographers across a range of genres, from news and sports to portraiture and visual essays.

Photojournalism requires a rare blend of skills, meticulous planning and lightning reflexes, technical mastery and aesthetic instincts, intellectual detachment and emotional intuition. This combination of objectivity and empathy allows a photographer to read a subject's inner world and express it through their setting. A life in a landscape, a narrative in a single frame. In selecting three finalists in each category, from more than 3000 images entered, the Walkley photography judges look for newsworthiness, impact, creativity and technical skill.  

This exhibition showcases a selection of images by the 2023 finalists, encompasses a range of subjects, from politicians to everyday folk, from our backyards to the furthest corners of the globe. Such is the power of photojournalism: in a moment of stillness, each voice says, “This is my story. I am here.”  

The exhibition will run in digital 4K format at The Edge from 21 March until 14 June 2024.

If you can't make it into The Edge, you can view the full range of images on our blog here.
