Walkley Foundation to administer Pascall Prize for arts criticism
The Walkley Foundation will administer the Pascall Prize for arts criticism and will present a new award for arts journalism, as part of its mid-year awards presented on 26 July.
A spokesperson for the Walkley Foundation told Books+Publishing that no cash prize will accompany the Pascall Prize, which was previously worth $15,000. The judges for the awards will not be announced until after the awards have been presented, as with all awards administered by the Walkley Foundation.
The Pascall Prize, which was last awarded in 2014, was launched in 1988 to commemorate journalist and critic for the Australian Geraldine Pascall and was previously administered by the Geraldine Pascall Foundation.
Recent recipients of the Pascall Prize include James Ley, Kerryn Goldsworthy, James Bradley, Geordie Williamson, Mark Mordue and Alison Croggon.
