Awards
   

Arts NSW administers three prestigious awards for published works of literature and history and for literary translation.

The NSW Premier's Literary Awards were established by Premier Neville Wran in 1979. They were the first comprehensive awards of their kind in Australia and remain the most comprehensive and best remunerated in the country.

The NSW Premier's History Awards were established in 1997 to honour distinguished achievement in history by Australians. They remain the only comprehensive set of history awards to be offered by an Australian state government. The primary focus for these awards is the promotion of excellence in the interpretation of history, through both the written word and non-print media.

The NSW Premier's Translation Prize is intended to acknowledge the contribution made to literary culture by Australian translators. It is offered only to translators who translate works into English from other languages. The Prize is offered biennially by the NSW Government through Arts NSW and the Community Relations Commission For A Multicultural NSW in association with International PEN (Sydney Centre).
