The sidney prize is an annual award that recognises a person or group that has contributed to social change and the improvement of human life. It is open to people of any nationality and can be awarded for a number of things, from academic achievement, personal attributes, community service, a requirement for start-up funding or the ability to inspire others.
The Black Lives Matter movement, founded in the United States by Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering Trayvon Martin, has been named this year’s recipient of the sidney prize. The prize will be presented in Sydney in November to the group which has campaigned for “peace with justice, human rights and non-violence”.
Keep Stepping, a documentary about two street dancers who are immigrants to Australia, won this year’s Documentary Australia Prize at the Australian Film Institute Awards. The film combines documentary and narrative techniques to explore the challenges that come with being part of a multicultural community in Australia.
It was written by Luke Cornish and directed by his sister, Gabriella. The film tells the story of two young women who move to Sydney and try to find their place in a competitive street dancing scene. It also explores the challenges that come with being immigrants to Australia.
In addition to the Sidney Prize, the University of Sydney also supports numerous other awards in the fields of science, literature, art, film and music. These prizes are decided on a national basis and celebrated in a variety of ways.
Students can submit for these awards, which typically include a cash prize and publication in a prize-winning magazine or newspaper. These awards are often accompanied by travel expenses.
One of these awards, the Sidney Cox Memorial Prize, is offered annually to the student whose writing most closely reflects those high standards set by English Department lecturer and author Sidney Cox in his teaching and writing. Any kind of undergraduate writing in English may be submitted.
The European Studies Konrad Adenauer Prize is awarded to the student who has achieved the best overall result in the Major, European Studies. It is administered by the Department of European Studies and is awarded based on academic merit.
There are also many other prizes for undergraduates at the University of Sydney, including the Sidney DeVere Brown Prize and the Mikiso Hane Prize. The papers of the winners of these awards are published in the University’s Wittenberg East Asian Studies Journal.
The University of Sydney has a long history of supporting the award of prizes for writing. The university has a wide range of prizes for the best writing that has been produced by undergraduate students. Some of these prizes have been awarded since 1930, and others have been established in recent years. Some of these prizes are sponsored by the University’s own departments, while others are offered in partnership with other organisations. In some cases, a prize is offered for the best work that has been produced by an undergraduate in any subject at the University of Sydney.
