Young Playwrights’ Award
Queensland Theatre’s Young Playwrights’ Award is one of Australia’s longest running annual playwriting competitions for young writers. Each year, high school aged writers (Years 9-12) are encouraged to submit an original play, which is read by a panel of industry professionals.
Applicants may submit an original play of any length and genre.
Applicants must also provide a rationale of up to 150 words describing themselves as a writer and also the inspiration for the work.
The 2018 prize winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to Theatre Residency Week* (valued up to $1500), dramaturgy sessions with Queensland Theatre and a professional reading of their work.
