This is a great opportunity for anyone wanting to write a radio play.

In the UK the BBC World Service and the British Council, in partnership with Commonwealth Writers have opened up entry to their International Radio Playwriting Competition 2020.

This competition is open to new and established writers who are NOT a resident of the UK and will be at least 18 years of age before 31st January 2020.

The competition is for radio playscripts of approximately 53 minutes (usually 1 page per minute) on any subject/genre with no more than 6 central adult characters, plus a synopsis of up to 400 words that outlines your play.

There are 2 categories, one for those whose first language is English and one for those who have English as a second language.

In each category, there is a prize of £2,500, and a trip to London including airfare and accommodation for one, to see your play being recorded and to attend a prize-giving event.

The closing date is 31 January 2020 at midnight GMT.

Good luck. 🤞
