Enter the ‘Kill Your Darlings’ New Critic Award 2021

One of Australia’s leading arts and culture magazines Kill Your Darlings has announced their 2021 KYD New Critic Award.

Entries are open to critics working in all fields of arts and culture who can offer engaging, thoughtful and accessible cultural criticism. 

From the Kill Your Darlings website:

This award assists the vocational development of an early-career critic across all artforms.

The winner will receive a total of $3000 prize money, consisting of a $1000 cash prize and a regular paid column (5 long-form articles at $400 each) in 2021, working closely with KYD editorial staff. Two runners up will each have the opportunity to publish one of their pitch proposals in KYD in 2021 (paid at KYD’s standard contributor rate of $300).

You do need to have a Kill Your Darlings Individual Membership to be eligible for this award, but it is less than $1 per week.

So if you’re a keen critiquing connoisseur and want the chance to earn some cash, submit your entry on the Kill Your Darlings website by 5pm AEDT Monday 30 November 2020.

Good luck!
