FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

International Radio Playwriting Competition


The tenth BBC World/ British Council International Playwriting Competition is now open.

This global competition carries a prize of £2,500 cash, a trip to the UK, and the opportunity to see your work produced and broadcast by BBC World Service.

New Zealand writers are eligible for both the grand prize and the Asia-Pacific competition. In 2001, Kiwi Philip Braithwaite took out the grand prize for his play Blood.

BBC World Service Radio broadcasts on 2,000 radio stations around the world attracting at least 150 million listeners each week.

The International Radio Playwriting Competition is open to all writers not normally resident in the UK. Works submitted must not previously have been published or performed.

Marion Nancarrow, Executive Produce BBC World Service Drama says, “if you are an experienced novelist or writer for theatre, film, television, but are new to Radio Drama; if you are a writer with no experience at all writing your first script; or if you’re a writer somewhere in between – we want to hear from you.

Previous winners have gone on to gain further commissions for BBC World Service Drama and other areas of BBC Radio Drama.”

Entries for this award close on 30 April 2007. Full details including entry forms are available from www.bbcworldservice.com/competitions or by contacting British Council New Zealand.
