Writers from around the world are invited to enter the 25th International Radio Playwriting Competition. The competition is presented by the BBC World Service and the British Council, in partnership with Commonwealth Writers and co-produced by the Open University. Three winners will receive fully paid trips to London and there are two cash prizes of £2200 (US $3350).
To be eligible to enter the competition, writers must be over the age of 18 and be living outside the UK. Entries are encouraged from both new and established writers.
The competition has two first prizes – one for writers with English as a First Language and another for writers with English as a Second Language. Both winners will receive £2200, be flown to London to attend an award ceremony and see their plays recorded for broadcast on the BBC World Service.
