Tony Barrass

Over a 32-year career Tony Barrass has covered some defining national moments: the Port Arthur massacre, the 2002 Bali bombings and the Sydney Olympics. In 1989 he made international headlines when he became the first Australian journalist jailed for refusing to reveal a source of information in a court of law. He is regularly asked to judge Australia’s most prestigious journalism awards, the Walkley Awards, and in 2010 was awarded the Clarion Prize for the most outstanding contribution to WA journalism. He now runs a boutique media advisory business, Tony Barrass & Associates.
