Papatango New Writing Prize 2018 opens for entriesFriday, December 01, 2017
The Papatango New Writing Prize 2018 opened for entries today (1 December), with writers able to submit their script until midnight, 28 February 2018.
The winner of the Prize will develop their play with Papatango over several months, building towards a four week production at Southwark Playhouse in autumn 2018. The script will be published by NHB. The writer will receive a royalty of 10% of the gross box office income. Following the production, the writer will be paid a £6000 commission to create a new play with development support from Papatango.
Entries must be full-length, and an original, unperformed and unproduced piece of work. For further information, including how to submit, visit the Papatango website.
