Playwrights' Competition Calendar


So many competitions, so little time.

Filed under: New Competitions — Gina @ 21:57

Lots of exciting new competitions in the calendar for August, September and October. Far too many to describe, but briefly:


Stage Fright is looking for a short radio horror for the London Horror Festival. (I’m trying this one)

Writing Squad is for 16-21 year old writers for a writing program (Too old)

Playwright’s Studio, Scotland is a mentorship program for emerging scottish Playwrights (Too English)

Million Hits Viral competition is for 16 to 30 year olds with a 30 second idea (Still too old)


Sterts Theatre One Act playwriting competition – self-explanatory (Too tired)

Street Voices 4 is a playwriting course for emerging writers from Yorkshire. (Too Southern)

October (I could have a go at all these. If I wanted. Too lazy)

The Channel 4/Òran Mór Comedy Drama Award – no more than 50 minutes in length and no more than 3 actors

hotINK at the Lark 2013 will present work by six playwrights from outside the United States – full length plays.

The Belper Short Play Festival is looking for max. 20 minutes.

Thanks to Jenny for the hint about the Sterts Theatre Comp. If anyone’s aware of any I don’t have, please let me know.

Happy Summer writing all. X
