The who's who of Australian journalism turned out for the 55th Walkley Awards held in Melbourne at the Crown Casino Ballroom on Thursday 9th December. In a double celebration - it was also the centenary of the Australian Journalists' Association - the 'elite' of the journalism world were rewarded for their coverage in categories spanning online news to magazine feature writing, documentary broadcast and radio, and everything in between. Yours truly joined the Nikon table (thanks Kylie and Jools) for the evening. Obviously the Nikon crew were most interested in the photography awards with rousing applause given to Jason South who took out Press Photographer of the Year.
