The Sidney Prize and Other Prizes at the Sydney Tennis Championships
The sidney prize is a national award given to people or organisations who have made a significant impact on Australia’s culture, society and economy. It has been awarded to groups including the Black Lives Matter movement, an international organisation devoted to human rights and non-violence; the Sydney Opera House, an iconic Australian cultural landmark; and the University of Sydney’s art history department.
This article is a complete breakdown of the prize money at the Sydney Tennis Championships this year along with the % increase from last year. The breakdown is provided by the official tournament website and includes both singles and doubles prize money.
There are also a number of other prizes offered by the University and wider community. These include the MAK Halliday Postgraduate Research Prize, which is awarded to a student who submits an outstanding paper or report in their field of research that uses beguiling imagery. There is also the APS Medal for Exceptional Achievement in Research, which recognises a researcher who has made a significant contribution to the development of science in Australia.
In addition to these, there are a number of scholarships that students can apply for. For example, the SS Sidney Prize for journalism is awarded monthly and recognises outstanding work that has appeared in the previous month. The prize is worth $500 and can be used to support a particular project or buy equipment. Nominations are open to the public and must be submitted by the end of each month.
Another scholarship is the Sidney Scholarship, which provides financial assistance to undergraduate students who are unable to afford fees. This scholarship can be used for any course in the University of Sydney, and is usually worth up to $5,000. Applications close in September each year.
Lastly, there is the Neilma Sidney Short Story Prize, which is awarded by Overland magazine for excellent short fiction themed around the notion of travel. The winner of this prize will receive $5000, and the two runners up will each be paid $750. Overland would like to thank all the writers who entered this year’s competition.
The 2022 Judith Wright Poetry Prize has been won by Yeena Kirkbright for her story “Camperdown Grief Junk”. This is the first time this prize has been won. The judges, who are Laura Elvery, Paige Clark and Michael Winkler, were very impressed with the quality of entries. The winner will be published in Overland’s autumn issue in 2023.
Luke Cornish’s documentary Keep Stepping won this year’s prestigious Sydney Film Festival prize of $7,000. The film follows Gabi and Patrix, two street dancers from Chilean-Samoan and Romanian descent who are trying to find their place in the world through dancing. The winning film combines documentary and narrative techniques to explore themes of immigration, identity, and gender. The prize was funded by the Mechanics’ School of Arts.
