Deadline: 28 February 2018

The 2018 Papatango New Writing Prize is now open for submissions until midnight on the 28th February 2018.

The winner will receive a four week production at Southwark Playhouse, publication by Nick Hern Books, 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.

The competition is open to anyone resident in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland only.

There is no age limit.

The play must have a playing time of at least sixty minutes.

All entries should include page numbers on every page.

Entry to the Prize is anonymous. It is completely acceptable to use your own, named email address to make a submission, as we detach scripts from the sender's email. Please do not include your name, address or email address anywhere on the script itself, however, nor attach a synopsis or CV.

Submissions should be submitted by email and in Microsoft Word or PDF formats only, with only a contact telephone number(s) on the front page.
