How to Win a Sydney Prize

A sidney prize is an award that recognizes hard work by awarding financial assistance, prestige and scientific promotion. These accolades also serve as motivation to work harder toward their goals – inspiring others in turn and driving towards achieving them more fully. These prizes can be given out to artists as well as scientists; however there are some criteria necessary for winning one of these coveted honors.

Sydney University literary prizes have a rich history dating back to bequests received at the start of the 20th century. All prizes require submission of written work (generally an essay or poem on a given topic), usually under an assumed pseudonym and with a copyright release form signed.

The Sydney Prize honors Dartmouth College professor Sidney Cox, who was widely revered for his literary skills and motivational abilities in inspiring students toward their dreams. It is offered annually to undergraduate writers whose writing best meets Cox’s high standards of originality and integrity set for his students; winners are announced during an informal ceremony that replicates Cox’s weekly gatherings for them.

Notable awards from Phi Beta Kappa include the Sidney Hook Memorial Award, presented annually at our national meeting to scholars who have demonstrated excellence in scholarship, undergraduate teaching or leadership within liberal arts education. It honors an American philosopher and Phi Beta Kappa member named Sidney Hook who believed undergraduate study to be essential in furthering the humanities. Nominations will be accepted every three years with calls being issued through Key Reporter, General Newsletters and social media.

Literary awards and scholarships provide ample opportunity for writers, from those just starting out to those already established in their field. Some are open to all writers while others specialize in specific forms or genres; many awards are sponsored by well-known publishing houses while others may come from private philanthropic organizations or universities.

Overland magazine and the Malcolm Robertson Foundation created the Neilma Sydney Short Story Prize to encourage young writers to explore travel themes through creative writing. The winner receives $5,000 cash, with their story published alongside two runners-up both in Overland magazine and online.

Hillman Foundation’s Sidney Award honors “outstanding socially conscious journalism that fosters social and economic justice.” This prize was established to commemorate Sidney Hillman, president and labor leader for Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America who advocated for progressive industrial democracy in his day. Since its formation, the Foundation has worked to shed light on issues that impact working Americans while seeking equitable solutions; their monthly winner includes Jane Mayer who wrote extensively on Dick Cheney’s abuse of power and Bill Moyers who has covered Iraq war coverage respectively.
