The Banjo Paterson writing Awards were established in 1991 to honour Banjo Paterson, a great Australian writer, and favourite son of Orange, with a competition to encourage Short Story and Contemporary Poetry writing with Australian content. The call for entries is announced each year on 17 February and this year we celebrate Banjo’s 160th birthday anniversary!

Here is the 2024 Banjo Paterson Writing Awards Entry Form with all the details. Entries close Friday 10 May 5pm.
