The Sidney Prize and the Neilma Sydney Prize

The Sidney Prize is a monthly award given to journalists who report on issues of social justice. The prize was named for a Dartmouth professor who believed in using writing as a tool for understanding and resolving conflict. The prize has been awarded since 1997. Each winner is honored during an informal ceremony similar to weekly gatherings that the professor hosted for his undergraduate students.

In a field where many young writers are encouraged to pursue journalism, the Sidney prize is an important recognition of their achievements. The winning story receives a cash prize and is published in the magazine. Runners-up also receive recognition in the magazine and online. The Neilma Sydney Prize, which is sponsored by Overland magazine and the Neilma Sydney Foundation, also recognizes excellent short fiction themed around travel. The contest is open to writers worldwide.

Awarded on the recommendation of the faculty to the student whose honors thesis most nearly meets the high standards of excellence in creative writing set by the late Sidney Cox. The award is made to the student in the English Honors Program whose overall work best explores feelings through language.

Founded in 1902, the University of Sydney is a top-ranked institution in Australia. It has a rich history and a reputation for educating students to lead the way in their fields. Its Nobel Prize-winning alumni, Elizabethan brickwork, the haunting Cloister Court, rococo Hall and medieval cellars are just some of the things that make this small institution punched above its weight. However, the campus remains a well-kept secret.

The Hillman Prize, named in memory of the founder of the New York Times, has a long tradition of shining a light on important public affairs. This includes the search for a basis for lasting peace, the need for better housing, health care and employment security, the promotion of civil liberties and democracy, and the battle against discrimination on the grounds of race, nationality or religion.

It is awarded to a writer whose article or book illuminates the great challenges of our time, whether it be the search for a basis for lasting peace, a commitment to civil liberties and democracy, or the fight against poverty and injustice. The winning article or book should be able to inspire readers to take action to achieve these goals.

The Sydney Prize is a monthly award for outstanding journalism that exposes social and economic injustices. Unlike other journalism awards, the Sidney Prize is not based on journalistic style or format but is awarded for stories that have had a significant impact on society.

Nominations are accepted for articles that appeared in the previous month. The deadline for nominations is the last day of each month.
