Call for Nominations: Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy

Call for Nominations: Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy

The Sterling Prize Committee is looking for work that challenges
complacency. The Nora and Ted Sterling Prize in Support of Controversy is
awarded annually to a recipient whose work presents new ways of looking at
the world, ways that are daring and creative. Whether a student, a staff
member, an academic at SFU, or a member of the community who has a
connection to the University, the prize winner is selected for decidedly
unconventional and distinctly nontraditional work that provokes a wide
audience. The winner receives a cash award of $5,000 and makes a public
presentation at the Centre for Dialogue.

Additional information about the Sterling Prize, including the Nomination
Form, can be found at: http://www.sfu.ca/sterlingprize/ . Deadline for
nominations is January 31, 2012.

The Sterling Prize Committee would appreciate receiving notice of intention
to nominate. Whether you’re planning to put together a nomination package,
or would like to suggest an individual whose work merits consideration,
please contact the committee at vpacad@sfu.ca .
