The Walkley Foundation is seeking applications for the Sean Dorney Grant for Pacific Journalism 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. The kind of stories that inspire news editors and audiences alike.
