CHASS Australia Prizes

2017 marks the fourth 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, practitioners, philanthropists, policy makers, and students.

Nominations have now opened for four prizes:

  • Two prizes are 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 arts policy.
  • The third prize (cash prize of $2,000) is sponsored by Future Leaders for a ‘Future Leader’, an individual under 30 years of age who is demonstrating leadership skill and potential in the arts, humanities and social sciences.
  • The fourth prize is sponsored by The Co-Op  ($500 voucher) for a student essay, exhibition, performance or project in any HASS area.
