The Sidney Prize and the Neilma Sidney Short Story Prize

The Sydney Prize is awarded monthly to an outstanding piece of journalism that appeared in the prior month. The deadline for submission is the last day of the month. The winning entry will be announced on the second Wednesday of each month. The winner will receive $500 and a certificate designed by New Yorker cartoonist Edward Sorel. In addition to the Sydney Prize, the Hillman Foundation also awards the Sidney Award for Journalism in Service of the Common Good and the SEIU Report on Racial Justice.

This year’s Sydney Prize was awarded to Nazanin Boniadi, an Iranian human rights activist who is fighting for women’s rights in her country. Her work has been instrumental in turning outrage into action. She is currently nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize and has won a host of other prestigious awards.

Overland’s Neilma Sidney Short Story Prize for travel-themed fiction was won by Wellington-based Jenah Shaw for her story “The Houseguest.” The prize, worth $4000, is to be published in Overland magazine. Judges Hannah Kent, Joshua Mostafa, and Margo Lanagan praised the entries as evocative and inventive.

A Sydney prize scholarship provides women in engineering with the opportunity to realize their ambitions and succeed in their careers. The scholarship is based on a unique approach to evaluating candidates’ strengths. The process begins with a series of questions that help determine the candidate’s suitability for the program. Then, the scholarship committee selects a small number of candidates for interviews.

Each year, the Sydney Prize honours leading global voices that promote peace with justice and nonviolence. Previous Laureates include Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Mary Robinson, Julian Burnside and Noam Chomsky. With your support, we can continue to honour courageous individuals and organisations who strive for a better world.

Applicants must be female engineers and have a master’s degree in the field of civil or mechanical engineering. The winners of the Sydney Prize will be able to take advantage of an exclusive program that will provide them with the skills they need to excel in their careers. This scholarship is a wonderful way to encourage women in the field of engineering.

The Sydney Prize is an international competition for undergraduate and graduate students who have written a dissertation-based article in the area of Consumer Culture Theory (CCT).

In addition to the prize money, all winners will be offered a full scholarship for the next year’s CCT conference. Interested students can apply to participate in this competition by the end of April. Detailed instructions are available on the contest’s website.
