Four journalists from The Age have been short-listed for the mid-year round Walkley Awards, which will be announced next month.

Political reporter Paul Sakkal is in contention in the short-form journalism category for a series of stories in November that revealed Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews was privately quizzed by the Independent Broad-based Anti-Corruption Commission during Operation Daintree investigations.

The anti-corruption watchdog probed the premier about contracts worth $3.4 million awarded to a Labor-linked union right before the 2018 election.

Melissa Fyfe and Jacqueline Maley’s April Good Weekend feature Rethinking Rape is vying for the Walkley Foundation’s Our Watch award. The piece examined how convictions for sexual assault in Australia remain low despite skyrocketing reports, with particular attention on the brutal legacy the legal process often leaves for complainants.

Another Good Weekend feature – Gabriella Coslovich’s The Art of the Steal – is shortlisted for the June Andrews award for arts journalism.

Published in July, it detailed a scandal surrounding the ownership of works stolen from deceased Indigenous artist Sally Gabori.

The mid-year Walkleys feature a smaller and specialised list of award categories. They will be presented on June 15.
