YouTube Video Awards

27th March 2007

It’s a sign of the times when YouTube creates its own Video Awards, which are voted upon by the public. The winners in the various categories of the 2006 awards have been announced.

I expect this will become a bigger event in years to come, with a live online ceremony and celebrities behaving badly.

Verity Bargate Award

27th March 2007

The Soho Theatre in London has announced it’s seeking entries for its Verity Bargate Award for a new play written by an emerging writer. Only one play can be submitted and it should be not less than 70 minutes in length. The deadline for applications is July 6.

The 2007 winner will receive £5,000 and a residency at Soho Theatre. “The prize money is in respect of an exclusive option for Soho Theatre to produce the winning play according to the Company’s standard license agreement.”
