Playwrights' Competition Calendar


Stop Press!

Filed under: New Competitions,Reminders — Gina @ 16:28

This is a very quick post because I’ve suddenly and surprisingly found myself in an empty house so it’s writing time (I’m at 16,500 words on my children’s book so reckon that’s about half way – hurrah!).

News is that the winner for A Play for Our Nation’s Youth is going to be announced at the end of next week (around the 10th) so five more days of wondering.

No word yet from the BBC about Opening Lines (well, not to me anyway. Let me know if you know.).

And if you like writing radio plays Frequency Theatre in Colchester are looking, and the fantastic Wireless Theatre have a competition running for a 15/20 minute play in association with The Actor’s Guild. (Not that Frequency Theatre aren’t also fantastic, because they might well be, but I’ve had a play done by Wireless and so i know they are!)

Now time to write like the wind! X



  1. Don’t forget Sterts one-act play writing competition. Deadline July 31. 30 minutes. Max 4 char. Prizes and production. Check Sterts website.

      • Thanks Gina. This is a new competition so not oversubscribed. All plays are read by more than one experienced judge before the shortlist is drawn up. First prize is £100 and full studio production. Runners-up get £25 and a rehearsed reading. Last year (the first one) was very successful and created a lot of interest. We hope this year will be even better.Cheers Jenny
