The John Button Prize
Entries sought for the 2013 John Button Prize
The John Button Prize awards $20,000 to the best piece of writing on public policy and politics in the past 12 months. It is a non-partisan prize that seeks to increase awareness of the best writing and thinking on long-term issues facing Australia.
The John Button Prize is open to any published piece of non-fiction writing on public policy or politics published in Australia from 1 May 2012 to 30 April 2013. You’ll find detailed criteria for entry on the link entitled The Judging Process.
The Prize is managed by the John Button Foundation (see About the Foundation), and funded by public donation. The Foundation is still seeking donors to ensure that the Prize is presented in perpetuity.
