HELPING WRITERS REALISE THEIR
CREATIVE AND PROFESSIONAL DREAMS

2019 KYD New Critic Award

In 2019, the New Critic Award is once again open to critics working in all fields of arts and culture (books, film, television, theatre, music, dance, performance, visual arts, etc). This year we’re particularly interested in writing that speaks to the changing nature of arts criticism — whether that be critiquing an underexamined art form, experimenting with prose style and structure, or highlighting new or underrepresented voices and perspectives.

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) in 2019, working closely with KYD editorial staff. Two runners up will each have the opportunity to publish one of their pitch proposals in KYD in 2019 (paid at KYD’s standard contributor rate).
