BBC Radio Play Competition 2011

7th December 2010 by Maura McHugh

BBC Radio Play

The BBC is taking entries for its International Radio Playwriting Competition, which is now in its twenty second year.

It is a competition for anyone resident outside Britain, to write a 60-minute radio drama for up to six characters.

There are two categories: one for writers with English as their first language and one for writers with English as their second language.

The two winners will come to London and see their play made into a full radio production, which will then be broadcast on the BBC World Service. They will also each receive a £2,500 prize and there are also prizes for the runners-up.

The play must be in English, unpublished and must not have been previously produced in any medium.

Entries must be received in London by midnight GMT on 31 March 2011.

The full list of terms and conditions are on the website.
