The Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition


The Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition allows members of the public to see the biggest stories of the past year through the lenses of Australia’s best press photographers.

Heartbreak and triumph, jubilation and devastation: it’s all on show.

Each year after the Walkley Awards, the Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition hits the road for a year to show a wide audience the outstanding moments in sport, daily life and news reportage.

Over the past three years the Walkleys has grown its photographic program to include exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Newcastle and Perth.

In 2014 the exhibition will also travel around regional Queensland through the support of APN News & Media.

At each location Nikon, The Walkley Foundation and the hosting venue launch the exhibition, with current finalists or winners invited to give a floor talk about the works and provide insight into finalists’ work.
