Now in their third year, the Walkley Slide Nights are an opportunity for photographers to show off their pet projects and is curated by dual Walkley winning photographer John Donegan. The evening will be a great opportunity to network with peers in the photographic and film making community.
The night will also see the official launch of the Walkley Foundation’s new ‘Documentary Award for Excellence’. The Walkley Documentary Award will recognise excellence in documentary production that is grounded in the principles of journalism—accuracy, impact, public benefit, ethics, creativity, research and reporting— together with rigorous filmmaking. The award will be open to a variety of documentary storytelling styles and the judges will be looking for courage and creativity in concept, approach and execution. Documentaries can encompass in-depth examination of issues of local, national or international importance or of contemporary or historic events and may include investigative, biographical and first person stories that reflect the emotion and drama of the human experience.
This new award category will be officially launched by AFI Award winner for Best Documentary, Anna Broinowski at the Slide Night so don’t miss out on RSVPing to attend as seats are limited.
See the latest photo-journalism show reels from the Walkley photographers plus have the opportunity to select a winner in the “people’s choice” award. See thought-provoking, witty and playful images from a range of photographers selected by the Walkleys Foundation for this special one-off night. The winner takes home a digital camera SLR.
