Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition


Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse

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 at the Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition, featuring works by Australia’s most outstanding photojournalists.

Each year, more than 350 entries are considered for selection in the annual Walkley Awards – the pinnacle of achievement for Australian press photographers judged by industry experts and awarded in November.

After the awards, the Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition hits the road to give a wide audience a glimpse into the outstanding moments in sport, daily life and news reportage captured during 2013.


Kate Geraghty is an all-round storyteller. She’s the ultimate professional.

This image was so great on the day. That was the only thing politicians were talking about, and at the heart of this debate, there’s a picture of a baby in a coffin. It made that so much more political. From a journalistic point of view, it’s an extraordinary moment.
