Mr Steve Armstrong,
2015 Prize winner

None believed this more so than Emeritus Professor Bruce Dawe AO, one of Australia’s most acclaimed contemporary poets. Professor Dawe believed that universities should support the study of Literature and promote the Arts in Australian society. His decision to sponsor this prominent Literary Prize is ongoing, living proof of his conviction.

This annual $2500 prize has been generously endowed by Emeritus Professor Dawe to celebrate Australian poetry.
