Recognising excellence in journalism across all mediums, the 52nd Walkley Awards were announced last night at a ceremony at the Royal Hall of Industries in Sydney.
The Australian journalist Hedley Thomas scooped the prestigious ‘Gold Award’ (considered the pinnacle of journalistic achievement) for his article entitled ‘Dr Haneef’, and Gerard Noonan walked away with ‘Most Outstanding Contribution to Journalism’
The awards were started in 1958 by Ampol Petroleum founder Sir William Gaston Walkley, in appreciation of the media’s support for his oil exploration efforts
