NSW Premier’s Literary Awards
The NSW Premier’s Literary Awards, established in 1979, celebrate excellence in Australian writing. Held on the first night of the Sydney Writers’ Festival, the awards recognise the best Australian writers — including novelists, poets, playwrights, scriptwriters and authors of non-fiction and children’s books.
With prizes totalling $305,000 in 2019, the awards are among the nation’s richest and most prestigious. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the awards — join us as we celebrate the contribution of authors and writers to our cultural lives and history.
