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...

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
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!
