The Clement Q. Williams Prize
Whereas the sum of $1,000* has been raised by a committee of former students of Clement Q. Williams, teacher of singing in the Elder Conservatorium from 1948 to 1957, and paid to the University for the purpose of founding an annual prize to commemorate his work, it is hereby provided as follows:
- A prize, to be known as ‘The Clement Q. Williams Prize', shall be offered annually.
- There is no age limit or restriction of nationality for competitors.
- The prize shall consist of the sum of $650 and shall be awarded to the candidate who shows the greatest ability and understanding in the performance of an approved programme of German lieder.
- The prize shall be awarded on the recommendation of the Director of the Elder Conservatorium.
- If the examiners do not consider any candidate worthy of the award the prize shall lapse for that year, but in such event an additional prize may be awarded in a subsequent year.
- These rules may be varied from time to time, but the title and the general purpose of the prize shall not be changed.
*Increased in 1973, by capitalisation of accumulated income, to $1,513.
