Theme: new collectives, old struggles
About the prize
What does unionism mean to people today? What should be its objectives? How can we come together to make real change, now and into the future?
This prize encourages artists and writers of fiction, poetry and essays to be part of setting a new agenda for our future – to imagine a just, common future, and how we might get there together.
The Fair Australia Prize is made up of 5 x $3000 prizes and 3 x $1000 union member prizes. There are prizes for:
- fiction (up to 3000 words)
- essay (up to 3000 words)
- poetry (up to 88 lines)
- cartoon or graphic (180 mm wide by 255 mm high)
- best overall entry by a migrant writer, artist or worker*, and
- three best member entries (for NUW, MEAA and NTEU members only); these $1000 prizes are awarded to member entries in any of the above categories
Winning entries will be published in a special Fair Australia supplement in Overland 233, to be launched in Melbourne in early December.
