2018 CHASS Australia Prizes

CHASS_Block_AustPrizes2018 marks the fifth year of the annual CHASS Australia Prizes. The Australia Prizes honour distinguished achievements by Australians working, studying, or training in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) sectors, including academics, researchers, practitioners, philanthropists, policy makers, and students.

Nominations for all four categories have now closed. Thank you to all those who have applied this year. Please follow/like our Twitter and Facebook pages for related announcements. The winners will be announced at the 2018 CHASS Australia Prizes Dinner on 29 October in Melbourne. Good luck!

Information about the Prizes: Two prizes are being sponsored by Routledge (cash prize of $3,500 each): one for a non-fiction book/e-book that enriches Australian cultural and intellectual life, the second for ‘Distinctive Work’- an exceptional artistic performance, exhibition, film, television show, play, composition or practical contribution to policy. The third prize (cash prize of $2,000) is being sponsored by Future Leaders for a ‘Future Leader’, an individual under 30 years of age who is demonstrating leadership skill and potential in HASS. CHASS is sponsoring the fourth prize (cash prize of $500) for a student essay, exhibition, performance or project in any HASS area.
