Jason South wins 2019 Nikon-Walkley Photo of the Year
Age photographer Jason South has won the 2019 Nikon-Walkley Photo of the Year Prize.
South won the award with his photo of George Pell, the most senior Catholic cleric in the world convicted of child sexual abuse, outside court in Melbourne.
The Nikon-Walkley judges praised South's image for managing to tell the biggest news story in Australia in a single frame, saying “it’s no mean feat to get an image that good out of a court job”.
The Walkley Foundation also announced the Finalists for the 2019 Nikon-Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism.
Winners will be announced on 28 November at the 64th annual Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism.
The finalists’ photographs will tour the nation in a series of free public exhibitions. Finalists are currently on display at 1826 Photography Studios & Gallery in South Melbourne until October 24.
