About the Pascall Prize
The Pascall Prize is Australia's only major national prize awarded for critical writing. The recipient of the Pascall Prize is named Australian 'Critic of the Year' and awarded $15,000.
This annual prize awarded to a critic whose work over the previous 12 to 18 months has contributed significantly to public debate, appreciation, enjoyment and understanding of an area of the arts.
The Pascall Prize is awarded by a panel of judges that includes industry peers and previous recipients. In 2012, the Pascall Prize will be presented at the Sydney Writers' Festival.
Entry is by nomination.
The purpose of the Pascall Prize is to reward a critic or reviewer whose work changes the perceptions of Australians, opens their eyes to a different perspective of their culture, develops a new interest in the subject and is both imaginative and creative.
The Pascall Prize celebrates incisive and well-crafted critical writing in areas including literature, art, architecture, food and wine, music, theatre, film, television, radio.
