Freedom of Information
A Workshop with William Summers
William Summer's blog utilises facts gleaned by knowing how to access information through our Freedom of Information regulations. If you are a current or potential blogger, a citizen journalist or simply an enthusiastic and engaged member of our community, learn the ropes from him. William was a finalist in the 2017 Walkley Awards.
William Summers is an independent writer, researcher and blogger based in Melbourne. In 2017 he was the first to uncover the dual nationality of then Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce, which earned William a nomination for the 2017 Walkley Awards for Excellence in Journalism - the first ever blogger to do be a finalist. William has since published stories with the ABC, Crikey and other media outlets, writing about politics, public policy and Freedom of Information.
