Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship Nominations

The fellowships provide unrestricted grants of $160,000 tax-free over 2 years to individual artists, arts managers and thought leaders in the humanities. Specific outcomes are not required. Nominees must be early mid-career, in the first 7 to 15 years of their practice.

Selection Process

To qualify for a Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship, nominees must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident nominated by another individual (who is not a member of their family).

Nominations are reviewed by a national Peer Review Panel with consideration to two criteria: outstanding talent and exceptional courage. The Peer Review Panel will recommend the highest regarded nominations to the Trustees of the Sidney Myer Fund for endorsement.

Nominations must be submitted by midnight AEST on the closing date, Sunday 20 June 2021.
