Performing Arts Awards Open
2 October 2014 at 9:40 am

Nominations have opened for the 2014 Sidney Myer Performing Arts Awards worth $150,000, to commemorate Sydney Myers life and love of the arts.

The Sidney Myer Performing Arts Awards were created in 1984 by the Trustees of the Sidney Myer Fund to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Sidney Myer and recognise outstanding  achievements in dance, drama, comedy, music, opera, circus and puppetry.

The Awards are annual and focus on two awards and one prize:

• The Individual Award ($50,000)

• The Group Award ($80,000)

• The Facilitator’s Prize ($20,000)

The Fund says the Awards are decided on a national basis and each nomination is considered by a Judging Committee.

While past achievement is recognised, consideration is also given  to the potential of an individual or group to continue their contribution to Australian  society through the performing arts into the future.

The Fund says that for the purpose of the Awards, the performing arts include all aspects of creation and performance across all forms of drama, comedy, dance, music, opera, circus and puppetry.

They do not include visual or plastic arts, crafts, film, electronic media or literature.

To nominate visit the program website.

Nominations for the Awards will close on 5.00pm A.E.S.T. Sunday 2 November 2014.
