The Imison Award from the Society of Authors and Peggy Ramsay Foundation (£3,000) celebrates the best in new writing for the medium of audio drama.
The prize was established in 1994 in memory of Richard Imison, a BBC script editor and producer, to acknowledge the encouragement, support and friendship he invariably gave to all writers, and particularly those working in the medium of radio.
The award is presented annually to an audio drama script by a writer new to the medium and which, in the opinion of the judges, is the best of those submitted.
Submissions will be accepted from any party (producer, broadcasting organisation, writer, agent etc.).
Applications are now open for the 2021 Imison Award, for audio drama scripts by a writer new to the medium which were broadcast or made available online between 1 October 2019 and 31 October 2020.
Deadline: 4 October 2020
