Legends of Journalism - The Australian Media Hall of Fame dinner


From the first convict-era newspapers to contemporary journalism in print, broadcast media and on new digital platforms, great journalism has built, enriched and defended our democracy.

The Media Hall of Fame - launched in 2011 by the Melbourne Press Club to celebrate Victoria’s finest reporters, editors, broadcasters, photographers, cartoonists and commentators - has now grown to embrace the nation’s best.

Join us – and leaders from throughout our industry – at a gala dinner to complete the foundation of the Australian Media Hall of Fame and induct more than 50 late and living legends of journalism from across the country.

All are welcome to attend.
