Walkley Foundation finalists for Excellence in journalism

The Walkley Foundation has announced the finalists for the 66th annual Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism.

The Walkley Awards, Australia’s pre-eminent national journalism awards, recognise and reward the best in the craft and set the industry standard for excellence.
