The Australian PhotoJournalist (APJ) is an annual journal that showcases the works of significant journalists (photo and text), writers, and academics, who seek to confront the tired notions inherent in our medium and applaud our successes.
The APJ is designed to make a difference. Our mission is to produce a publication that is not only a testament to the unquestionable calibre of our discipline, but also casts a critical eye on global journalism and mass media practices. We are a non-profit publication. The editorial board is made up of emerging journalists from the undergraduate and postgraduate programs at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University.
The first issue of the journal was published in 1994 and each successive edition has seen an improvement in content, design and print quality.
You will be left with no other feeling when reading Unsustainable Cruelty, than “enough now”. Enough now of the large transnational food corporations whose irresponsible pursuit of profits threatens survival. Enough now of our mindless complicity in this pursuit and our willingness to risk future generations for cheap cuts of meat on demand. Enough of farming practices that destroy environments, create antibiotic resistant super bugs and threaten the health of the ecosystem on which we depend for survival. Enough now of the madness that allows unimaginable cruelty to exist on an inconceivable scale as we feast to obesity. Enough now, surely enough now.
Unsustainable Cruelty is available to purchase for $30AUD (plus postage and handling):
Unsustainable Cruelty Preview
Traditionally an epilogue is the final chapter at the end of a story that serves to reveal the fates of the characters. Unlike in fictional stories, the characters in this edition of the Australian PhotoJournalist are real and their stories do not draw to a close once you turn the final page.

Silent Screams – The Rights of the Child
Over 50 years after the signing of the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child, millions of children around the globe continue to live in a state of constant emergency. For many children, protection, safety and a free, dignified childhood are but a distant dream.

Picturing Human Rights
This 272 page full-colour book was compiled in response to the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The editorial board sought to evaluate the success of this declaration for all human beings regardless of race, religion, gender, age and ethnicity, and to expose the stories of those who have fallen through the cracks of this most noble vision.
