Young Playwrights’ Award
Posted by Queensland Theatre | Jun 10, 2021
Queensland Theatre’s Young Playwrights’ Award is one of Australia’s longest running annual playwriting competitions for young writers.
About the Young Playwrights’ Award
Each year, high school-aged writers (Years 9 – 12) are encouraged to submit an original play, which is read by a panel of industry professionals.
Applicants are invited to submit an original play, written for the stage. The script can be of any length and genre. Applicants must also provide a rationale of up to 150 words describing themselves as a writer and also the inspiration for the work.
The 2021 prize winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Theatre Residency Week (valued up to $1500), dramaturgy sessions with Queensland Theatre and a professional reading of their work.
Entries close on Monday 12 July
Winner Announced Monday 2 August
