Entries are now open for the second year of the prize, for the best book, TV series, podcast or film about Sydney crime, released in the 2018/19 financial year.

This year’s prize will be presented by John Ibrahim, last year’s winner, at an event that will also see the Ned Kelly Awards presented in Sydney for the first time.

Five copies of each entry should be sent to PO Box 177 Potts Point Sydney NSW 1335. Entries close at the end of July.

The prize winner will be announced on 6 September, alongside the Danger Lifetime Achievement Award. Given for a career exploring Sydney’s dark side in fact or fiction, this award was won last year by the late great Peter Corris.

Tickets for the awards night go on sale here soon. For more information email
