Previously called the Sidney Lanier Prize, the Thomas Robinson Prize is a writing award that honors writers who have a deep commitment to writing about the South. It was first awarded in 2012. It is given out each year to writers who have extended their work to include Southern themes and experiences.
The award is named after the 19th-century Southern poet. It recognizes writers who have written about the South, and awards the winner with $500,000. The judges for the Thomas Robinson Prize are Alice Robinson, Julie Koh, and Alan Sincic. The winning writer of the Sidney Award is Greg Palast, who has penned many New York Times bestsellers.
This prize is sponsored by the Sidney Hillman Foundation, which gives awards for investigative journalism in the United States. Each award includes a certificate and $500 honorarium. The winners receive publication online and in the magazine. It is a competition for writers at all stages of their careers. It is open to short fiction of up to three thousand words.
This prize is awarded to a writer for a work of fiction that explores the boundaries of language. It is given to writers who are based in the South and have lived in the region for at least one year. The winner of the prize is also selected from a finalists list of eight. The runner-ups each receive $750. The Neilma Sidney Short Story Prize is also supported by the Malcolm Robertson Foundation. The winners and runners-up of this award are also published in Overland magazine. Runners-up can enter the competition at a special subscriber rate.
The award is made possible through the generosity of the late Sidney Edelstein, who donated the prize in his memory. The prize consists of a plaque and a $3,500 check. The late Sidney Edelstein was the founder of Dexter Chemical Corporation and an expert on the history of dyes. He was also awarded the Leonardo da Vinci Award in 1988.
