April 9 2021, News Original Playwriting

The 2021 Original One Act Playwriting competition is now open!
Authors from across the South-West are invited to submit their scripts to the Secretary of the SFD by noon on Sunday 12th September 2021.
Now is the time to write that one act play that you have always wanted to write, or see performed. Please note~ if you are a young author, under 25, then your entry will be judged in a separate category with its own winner. There will be cash prizes of £100 for the winners in both the general and young author category. There may also be up to two highly-commended runners-up who will receive cash prizes of £25. Other short-listed scripts may receive certificates of commendation.
All the scripts received are read by the competition’s panel. A short list is then drawn up and SFD groups will be offered the opportunity to take any of the short-listed scripts and turn them into original productions for presentation at the 2022 County Drama Festival.
Please see the SFD website for the competition rules, regulations and entry form. www.somersetdrama.org.uk
We are looking forward to reading your scripts – please get busy with those pens and keyboards!
