Rodney Seaborn Playwriting Award 2018

Rodney Seaborn Playwriting Award 2018

Applications are now open for the $20,000, Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award 2018. Such financial support for playwrighting is one of the richest in Australia.

The Playwrights Award is for the development of a play or other approved performing arts project and is intended to provide income support during the writing or development process or to assist with the costs of production, workshops, restaging, publishing or touring. It is not intended as a prize for a finished, produced work.

Winners have included Katherine Thomson, Ros Horin, Debra Oswald, Don Reid, Rosalba Clemente, Rachel Brown, Reg Cribb, Finegan Kruckemeyer and Campion Decent. Kit Brookman won last year’s award for his new work ITHICA.

Entries close Wednesday 6 September 2018 and should be made on the form available from the SBW Foundation website
