The Prague Post Playwriting Contest 2008 is Launched
A Press Release from The Prague Post
Now accepting submissions for The Prague Post Playwriting Contest 2008!
Call yourself a writer?
Always wanted to write a play, but never got started?
Are you an experienced playwright looking to kick-start a new idea?
If you answered yes to any of the above, it's time to put pen to paper or fire up that laptop...
Because The Prague Post Playwriting Contest 2008 is open for business! Last year, we received more than 100 entries. This year we want even more.
Here's what we require:
Original stage plays, never produced in Prague.
Approximate run time of 30 minutes.
Submitted in English (and, yes, it can be a translation!).
Playwrights who are current or former residents of the Czech Republic (references required).
Entries received by November 30th.
Full contest rules can be found at http://www.praguepost.com/playcontest/rules
There are a bevy of prizes up for grabs:
The top prize is 20 000 Kc.
Top three finalists receive a full production at Divadlo Minor in Feb.-Mar. 2008.
Audience prize for the best production resulting from the contest.
Special prize for the best play written by a non-native English speaker.
The entry fee is only 100 Kc per submission (multiple submissions accepted).
Many of last year's entrants say the contest was a great excuse to finally get an idea out of their head and onto paper. So what's stopping you? Get writing!
