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: Papatango New Writing Prize 2019 open for entries
Description: The Paptango prize 2019 is now open for entries of full length plays. Opening in 2009, the Papatango New Writing Prize was the first – and remains the only – annual playwriting award in the UK to guarantee an emerging playwright a full production on the professional stage.
What’s so great about it? Over the last decade, the Papatango Prize has become a stalwart in the calendar of emerging playwrights. Not only is it the only competition which guarantees the winner a full professional production but it also provides a royalty of 10% of the gross box office and publication by Nick Hern Books, as well as a full commission to support a follow-up play.
Paptango are well known for their dedication to supporting playwrights and this is a corker of an opportunity for anyone who wants to catapult their playwriting career. You’ve got until 17 February to enter! Good luck!
