John Hinde Award for Excellence in Science-Fiction Writing

About the John Hinde Award

Funded by a bequest from the late Australian film critic Australian film critic John Hinde, the John Hinde Award is the richest science-fiction screenwriting award in Australia, offering $10,000 for the best produced script and professional support for the best unproduced script.

In the spirit of these intrepid sci-fi dreamers, the 2019 John Hinde Award for Excellence in Science-Fiction Writing seeks those who dare to look beyond the world as it is and ask questions, and who foster the creation of great science-fiction stories.

After all, at the forefront of every bold endeavour, scientific breakthrough, and thrilling ride through time and space has been a writer with a simple question: what if? 

So get dreaming! 

Entries open 9 July 2019, and close Friday 9 August 2019.
