Sydney Prize is an award given to people who have made significant contributions to society. These contributions can be anything from helping communities to contributing to science. The Sydney Prize is a way to recognize their efforts while also inspiring others to do the same. There are many different types of Sydney Prizes and each comes with its own set of requirements for eligibility.
The Sydney Peace Prize was created to honour individuals who have promoted “peace with justice and human rights”.

The foundation also honors those who work to protect civil liberties and fight discrimination based on race, religion or nationality.

It is made possible by a gift from the estate of the late Sidney E. Iwanter, a University of Wisconsin-Madison alumnus (B.A. History, 1971).
For their breakthroughs in computational science and data analysis, and their contributions to the Julia programming language and high performance computing. The prize also lauds their work on graph partitioning, sparse linear systems, and high-performance simulation frameworks for materials science, chemistry, biology and other scientific areas.
For his innovative work in developing highly scalable, parallel algorithms and software for solving differential equations and other complex problems. His work is crucial for many scientific applications, including astrophysics, turbulence and genomics. The prize is supported by the Sydney Region Australian Academy of Science.
