Following the success of the 2011 competition the South Australian Writers’ Theatre (SAWT) is pleased to announce its 2012 One Act Play competition.
This year we are very happy to announce that Matt Byrne Media are sponsoring our competition and have made it possible for us to offer cash prizes.
$250.00 first prize, $150.00 for the People’s Choice and $100.00 for the Matt Byrne encouragement award.
SAWT is keen to encourage emerging writers to explore the possibilities in writing for the stage and is promoting this competition to find the Australian playwrights of tomorrow. The three short listed plays will be presented at a rehearsed reading in October 2012.
SAWT has been operating in SA since 1985. New works are put through a process of readings and workshops culminating in a rehearsed reading. At the 2010 Fringe Festival SAWT and Spotlight Theatre Co presented Ross Barrett’s “Final Round”. In 2011 they were co-producers of James Majur’s play about the plight of young Sudanese women, “Broken Pot”.
The competition is now open and entries will be accepted until 5.00pm on 24th August 2012.
There is no specific theme for this competition.
A small entry fee of $10 will be charged to cover administrative costs. The judging panel will be drawn from the Arts Community in SA and will consist of experienced playwrights and directors.
