The Pascall Prize is Australia's only major national prize awarded for critical writing.
This annual prize is awarded to an Australian critic whose work over the previous 12 to 18 months has contributed significantly to public debate, appreciation, enjoyment and understanding of an area of the arts.
The recipient of the Pascall Prize is named 'Australian Critic of of the Year' and awarded $15,000.
The Pascall Prize is awarded by a panel of judges that includes industry peers and previous recipients, and a member of the Geraldine Pascall Foundation.
The Pascall Prize seeks to identify and reward an Australian critic whose work:
The purpose of the Pascall Prize is to reward a critic or reviewer whose work changes the perceptions of Australians, opens their eyes to a different perspective of their culture, develops a new interest in the subject and is both imaginative and creative.
The Pascall Prize celebrates incisive and well-crafted critical writing in areas including literature, art, architecture, food and wine, music, theatre, film, television, and radio.
