Whistleblower award at the Walkley’s?

May 30th, 2005 · 1 Comment

walkley_1.jpgMiriam Lyons has launched her “one woman campaign” for a whistleblower award to be included in Australia’s media awards, the Walkleys.

“For every lie revealed, every cover-up uncovered, someone [has] risked everything to tell us what we need to know, and then disappeared quietly out of view, to spend time with their families amidst the ruins of their career…”

Journalists have a field day whenever an insider has the guts to talk to the media, so the annual media awards seem like the perfect forum.

Miriam figures the board are likely to “give the idea a fair hearing”, the concept just needs a few advocates. You can be one of those advocates by calling the Walkley’s office on (02) 9333 0945 or by writing a note to the editor of the Walkley Magazine.
