Two Greek Australian journalists are finalists in The Walkley Foundation’s Mid-Year Celebration of Journalism for 2020.
Natassia Chrysanthos, education reporter for The Sydney Morning Herald, is a finalist in the ‘Shortform journalism’ category with her piece, New Year’s Eve bushfire coverage.
Dion Georgopoulos from The Canberra Times is also being recognised in the ‘Visual storytelling’ category for his amazing photographic piece, Australian Bushfire Coverage.
These awards by The Walkley Foundation recognise the hard work of outstanding young Australian journalists.
They reward the efforts of journalists aged 28 and under who demonstrate excellence in the fundamental tenets of the profession, as well as the ability to present distinctive and original journalism that pushes the boundaries of the craft.
Winners will be announced at the (virtual) Mid-Year Celebration of Journalism on June 17.
