We’re delighted that Annabel Crabb and Margaret Simons have been announced as finalists in the 65th Walkley Awards for excellence in journalism.
Crabb’s Quarterly Essay Men at Work: Australia’s Parenthood Trap is a finalist in the Feature Writing Long category. Examining parental leave and the gendered nature of parenting in Australia, the essay has since been updated to include the large-scale working from home experiment during the COVID-19 pandemic and is available in book form.
Simons’ Penny Wong: Passion and Principle is longlisted for the Walkley Book Award. This first-ever biography of Wong is a revelatory portrait of one of the most talented, poised and respected Australian politicians. Drawing on exclusive interviews, it offers a scintillating insight into a politician without precedence.
Congratulations to Annabel Crabb and Margaret Simons, and all finalists announced today. The award ceremony will be held on Friday, 20 November.
