Walkley Awards 2022: winners

Four Corners, Seven News, 60 Minutes, 7:30 and ABC News were amongst winners of the 67th Walkley Awards held at ICC, last night in Sydney.

Four Corners won the Gold Walkley for Anne Connolly, Stephanie Zillman and Ali Russell’s report, “State Control.” The story revealed some 50,000 Australians are currently under the control of Public Guardian and Trustee agencies, stripped of their assets and stopped from speaking out.

Former executive producer Sally Neighbour (pictured top centre) was honoured for her Outstanding Contribution to Journalism.

Chris Reason and the Seven News team also won two awards for Ukraine coverage.

Reason said: “Seven News is so proud to have received these awards. From the frontline team to the dozens of people who worked tirelessly to pull this award-winning coverage together back in Australia. Television news is a team effort – it takes editors, producers, camera crews, graphics units, chiefs of staff, techs, presenters and reporters. And it takes back-up from management. Seven News was inside Ukraine, on the frontlines, for a longer continuous stretch than any other media organisation. That takes a massive financial commitment – and I applaud Seven management for having the faith to back our teams on the ground for so long. Finally, we pay our greatest tribute to the people of Ukraine has come together – and stepped up. Their resilience and resolve have been beyond belief. And it is turning the course of the war. We salute them. It’s been an honour to tell their stories. Slava Ukraina!!”

60 Minutes was awarded for an investigation into Star Casino.

The Walkley Foundation’s chief executive, Shona Martyn said: “This has been a huge year for news with war in Ukraine, horrific floods and a federal election. Australian journalists, photographers and camera operators have excelled in their coverage of these major events, sometimes putting their lives on the line. This year’s best journalism also includes stories that were uncovered by old school legwork, tips, hard work, hunches and painstaking and considered investigation. I congratulate all the winners and finalists for their recognition in the 67th Walkley Awards. And thank our sponsors and partners for their support.”
