Due to popular demand, BAD Sydney is back for a second year running with an exciting program. Click here for the festival program
A newcomer to the program is the Danger Prize night, hosted by award-winning novelist Candice Fox, who will oversee the ultimate crime ‘pub quiz’ as patrons find themselves with some of the country’s best crime writers in the race to find the best crime guru.
The night will kick off with the inaugural Danger Prize being awarded to the best TV series, book or film about crime and Sydney. Former political journalist, Laurie Oakes will present the Danger Prize as well as the Danger Lifetime Achievement Award.
This annual event explores what crime can tell us about humanity, both contemporary and historical. The speakers include writers, reporters and film-makers, and professionals from the justice system such as detectives, judges and psychologists.
Sydney is particularly appropriate for such exploration because it was founded by convicts and their guards. It has been significantly affected by crime and corruption for much of its history.
