Welsh Drama Award - a big and prestigious prize

The first writer’s award in Wales for a drama in any medium is looking for bold, original writers who want to write for two of the most dynamic companies. BBC Cymru Wales TV Drama, BBC writersroom and National Theatre Wales are working in partnership on this prestigious award, looking to celebrate writing talent working in Wales.

Writers are at the heart of all great drama. Launched to tie in with the opening of the BBC Roath Lock Drama studios this is a celebration of writers in the region and an open call to Welsh talent, emerging and established.

The winner of the Wales Drama Award will receive £10,000 with two runners-up receiving £1000 each. All award winners will be given an opportunity to develop their script / ideas with either BBC Cymru Wales TV Drama or National Theatre Wales.

The competition is open to any writer residing in Wales. The organisers want to encourage writers who feel passionate about the stories they want to tell, and who have something to offer audiences across the length and breadth of Wales and the wider UK.

Writers must submit a full length script in any medium, minimum length 30 minutes, to BBC writersroom (www.bbc.co.uk/writersroom/) by July 16th 2012, that is unperformed or unproduced and in the English language.
