Education and Social Work Arts Prize

This prize was established to commemorate the historic milestones of a centenary of education and seven decades of social work being celebrated in 2010 by the Faculty of Education and Social Work and its predecessors at the University of Sydney.

The winner, to be announced at the Centenary of Education dinner in the Great Hall on November 22, will be the creative work – visual art (including painting, drawing and photography), video art (including animation), performance or creative writing – that is judged to best represent 100 years of education and/or 70 years of social work at the University of Sydney.

Current and former students and staff are encouraged to a work for judging, as well as possible inclusion in the associated exhibition that has been organised under the auspices of the faculty.

This prize has ended.
