Nick Darke Award - With Falmouth University

An annual competition for stage plays, radio or screenplays that tackle an environmental theme. Run in conjunction with Falmouth University and in memory of writer, Nick Darke.

Funded by Falmouth University, the Nick Darke Award commemorates the playwright Nick Darke, and was conceived following his death by his wife, the artist and film-maker Jane Darke, with the support of his family. Nick Darke wrote in many forms but earned his living in the world of theatre, screen and radio. The award is therefore presented each year to a writer for work that peruses an environmental theme within one of the following disciplines:

Stage play

Radio play


The £6,000 prize money is intended to help provide the time for writers to be able to write that financial support facilitates.
