Writers from around the world are invited to submit their scripts for the 28th International Radio Playwriting Competition, which is now open for entries.
The global competition, hosted by BBC World Service and the British Council, offers the unique opportunity for writers from outside the UK to use the medium of audio drama to tell stories for an international audience.
There are two categories: English as a First Language and English as a Second Language. The two first prizes can come from either category.
Both winners will attend an award ceremony in London and see their plays being recorded for broadcast and streaming on BBC World Service. A Special Commendation will be made for the runner-up in honour of the BBC World Service journalist and writer Georgi Markov (1929-1978).
Please read the competition rules and the privacy notice before entering.
