"Established by the Walkley Foundation, the Sean Dorney Grant for Pacific Journalism aims to encourage more and better journalism about the Pacific islands region by Australian media professionals and outlets," the Walkley Foundation said
It goes on to say that a grant of $A10,000 will be awarded annually to assist an Australian journalist to produce a "significant" work of journalism in any medium. "The work will give voice to Pacific island perspectives on an under-reported issue or development of importance to Australia and the region."
The judges are looking for original journalism with public-interest value and impact. Stories that surprise, educate and make a difference.
