Prizes & scholarships
A masterpiece of architecture, engineering and creativity, the Sydney Opera House embodies excellence and the liberating power of art and ideas. The product of a global competition, it is Australia's most significant building and a symbol of Australian optimism.
For over four decades the Opera House has been a source of inspiration and it is this legacy that its custodians, donors and supporters are committed to ensuring is passed on to future generations through the Opera House's prizes and scholarships.
