Project Description

The Australia-China Journalist Exchange Program will work to build relationships between our countries through experiences and education for reporters.

With the ACC, the Walkley Foundation offers an opportunity for two senior Australian journalists to travel to China for a week-long visit from October 24 – November 1, 2016. The exchange will involve seven days of meeting with governments, media organisations, educational institutions and specific industry bodies and will be coordinated with the Australian embassy in Beijing to help the visiting journalists develop a clear picture of some of the big stories coming out of China, and build awareness and relationships between our countries

This is a brilliant opportunity for driven journalists to enjoy unique access to some of China’s key organisations and personalities, and build a wealth of contacts and story ideas. Successful applicants will have their airfares, accommodation and transfers covered, and will be uniquely placed to learn about Chinese culture and bring Chinese stories to Australia.

The Walkley Foundation also received funding from the Australia-Korea Foundation.
