Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.
This week’s pick: Nick Darke Award 2017 open for submissions (£6000 prize)
Description: Established in 2006 to celebrate the best writing for stage, screen and radio, the Nick Darke Writers’ Award is funded by Falmouth University’s Academy of Music and Theatre Arts, and the School of Writing & Journalism. The award commemorates the playwright Nick Darke and was conceived following his death by his wife, the artist and filmmaker Jane Darke, with the support of his family. Nick Darke wrote in many forms but earned his living in the world of theatre, screen and radio. The 2017 category is a full stage play script with one page synopsis.
What’s so great about it? The big competition season is in full swing with the launch of the 2017 Nick Darke Award. Another well known award, this one offers the winner a £6000 to help fund their playwriting endeavours. Even better, this year, they are specifically looking for a full length stage play along with a one page synopsis – entries must be anonymous though! You’ve got until 31 May to get your scripts in for this one. Good luck!
