Governor-General's Prize

Australia's Most Prestigious Essay Competition

The Governor-General's Prize is an annual essay competition open to students who are Australian citizens and enrolled in an undergraduate degree at an Australian university.

For over ten years, this prestigious competition has provided students with the opportunity to be recognised for their academic skill, talent, and research.

Each year, the judging panel for the Governor-General’s Prize has been chaired by a Justice of the High Court of Australia. This year Justice Nettle will chair the judging panel.

Entries open on 4 May and close on 31 December 2018
