The State Library of NSW has opened nominations for the NSW Premier's History Awards 2013. According to NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell: "Fostering of scholarship in literature and history is central to civil society. Knowledge of who we are and where we have come from creates a richer, more tolerant and more confident society." The winners will be presented at an awards ceremony in September 2013. Administered by the State Library of NSW, in association with Arts NSW, the NSW Premier's History Awards offers prizes in five categories:
• Australian History Prize • General History Prize • New South Wales Community and Regional History Prize • Young People's History Prize • Multimedia History Prize
