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: Platform Presents – 2023 Playwright’s Prize
Description: Platform Presents is receiving script submissions for its 2023 Playwright’s Prize, an open call for distinctive, dynamic, heart-stopping, extraordinary, wonderful plays.
Why is it so great? The annual prize and fundraiser is co-produced with Finite Films & TV, founded by Amy Gardner, and judged by a high profile group of industry experts. The winner receives £5,000 and mentoring to bring their play to stage and or screen. The five Runners-Up each receive £1,000. If you’d like to apply, you have until 15 May to submit your full or partial plays of up to 10000 words.
