Published by the Walkley Foundation for Journalism, The Walkley Magazine is the only forum for discussion of media and professional issues by and for journalists.
The Walkley Magazine is always looking for new ideas and stories for publication in the magazine and on our website. So if you have an idea, please let us know.
To maintain the tradition of the Walkleys, the magazine aims to be a pithy, intelligent and challenging read, and to stand as a record of interesting news in the craft and profession of journalism.
As a forum for industry discussion we aim to support each other. Our preference is to examine trends across the industry rather than focus on individuals or organisations. Obviously every story can’t have a happy ending, but criticism should be constructive and possible solutions considered.
The Walkley Magazine welcomes articles on issues broadly related to the media, journalism and how we practice the craft. This could include a feature or news story, original photography, a cartoon or illustration. There is also room for opinion pieces about the craft as well as columns and reviews of books and documentaries.
The Walkley Magazine stands as a record of the most relevant media issues of the day and is packed with original stories, opinion, reviews, photographic essays, illustration and cartoons by contributors from throughout Australian journalism. A print edition is published twice a year with a readership of more than 8,000. Stories are published online year-round, and we welcome multimedia contributions and ideas for regular blogs or features.
Word length varies but an average of 1000 words applies to most stories. All contributions are unpaid.
