The 2016 Prize

2016 PAPATANGO PRIZE OPENS – WITH EXTRA £6000 AWARD!

We are delighted to announce the 2016 Papatango New Writing Prize is now open for entries.

As well as a four week production at Southwark Playhouse, publication by Nick Hern Books and a royalty of 10% of the gross box office, this year’s winner will also receive a £6000 commission to develop a follow-up play.

This is a major commitment for a company without core funding, run mainly in a voluntary capacity, and reflects how Papatango strive to lead the way in opportunities for writers.

The deadline to submit an unproduced script, of at least 80 minutes’ length, is midnight, Thursday 31 March 2016.

Scripts should be anonymous, with two telephone numbers (still valid in May 2016) on the front page, and emailed in Word or PDF formats to scripts@papatango.co.uk.

Before making a submission, please read our literary guidelines.
