People all over the world work tirelessly to make a positive impact on humanity and it is important that their efforts are recognised. One way to do this is through a sidney prize, which is awarded on a national basis and can recognise a wide range of different activities. These can include writing, science and working with communities. This is a great way to reward those who are making an impact while also encouraging others to do the same.
The Sydney Prize is a monthly journalism award that was established in 2009. It is named after the late scientist who championed liberal education principles. It recognizes journalists and authors who strive to advance social justice and public policy for the common good. The award also pays tribute to those who have worked in the field of health and human rights and promotes quality work in these fields.
Applicants must submit an article that was published in the prior month. The submission deadline is the last day of the month. Submitted articles should be marked with the date that they appeared online, rather than the issue date of the publication in which they were published. Those who are interested in applying for the Sydney Prize should read the official rules and requirements carefully before submitting their entries.
There are a variety of different ways to apply for a sidney prize, but the most important thing is to make sure that you meet all of the requirements. You can also contact a Sydney Prize adviser if you have any questions or need help completing your application. It is also a good idea to check out other sidney prizes that may be available before applying for one, as these can often be very competitive and require a lot of effort to win.
