The images on display have been recognised by the Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism because they capture stories of triumph, tragedy and everyday life and showcase the works of Australia’s best photographers. They include powerful images from the year in news around Australia as well as off-shore coverage from Ukraine and Afghanistan. The free exhibition is open to the public in the Parliament’s Fountain Court on weekdays from 9am to 5pm, until 16 December. The winners of the 2022 Awards will be announced on November 17 across all categories, spanning news and sport photography to portraiture and photographic essays. Click here for more information.
