The Nikon-Walkley Press Photo Awards competition is open for 2012, inviting journalists from around Australia to submit their best work produced between 1st September, 2011 and 31st August, 2012.
The Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Awards are the most prestigious competition for photojournalists in Australia. Nikon proudly sponsors the awards in seven categories including; News Photography, Daily Life, Sport, Photographic Essay, Portrait, Community/Regional Photography and the Nikon-Walkley Press Photographer of the Year.
The Press Photographer of the Year 2011, Phil Hillyard, had this to say about his experience of entering the Nikon-Walkleys: “For me, preparing to enter the Walkleys is way of looking back at your work over the past year. Once you’ve entered a few times, It also gives you a chance to see how your work is changing or progressing over the years. I would always encourage photographers to enter”.
Remember, entry is free for all members of the Media Entertainment and Arts Alliance. For information on this, contact the Alliance membership centre on 1300 65 6512. For more details on the photography categories, prizes and how to enter click here.
