We welcome nominations for the following awards:
- Individual Award $40,000
- Group Award $70,000
- Facilitator's Prize $15,000
The Awards were created in 1984 to commemorate the life and cultural interests of Sidney Myer, and are primarily intended to enhance the status of the performing arts and artists in Australia. The Awards recognise past achievement, and consideration is also given to the potential of an individual or group to continue their contribution to Australian society through the performing arts.
We encourage you to submit a nomination, or nominations, for the three Awards. Please feel free to distribute information about the Awards to your networks.
