Offering a total prize pool of $6,000 AUD cash and a publishing contract.
The Noosa Arts Theatre National One-Act Playwriting Competition attracts entries from playwrights across Australia, New Zealand, the UK and USA.
This playwriting competition offers a unique opportunity for the three finalist playwrights to see their new work performed on stage at the Noosa Arts Theatre One-Act Play Festival, for a 11 performance season over 3 weeks in July as part of the Noosa Longweekend 10 day cultural festival - fast becoming one of the nations top cultural festivals.
Scripts are judged anonymously by a local panel to prepare a shortlist; the shortlisted scripts are sent to a professional panel of 3 industry experts, who will also judge the scripts anonymously, give written assessments which are sent to the playwrights, and decide the 3 finalists.
During the Festival, the audience is asked at each performance to vote for the ‘Nancy Cato Audience Choice Award'.
Presentations of Awards take place after the final performance.
Titles such as Michael Olsen's Two Women and a Chair (winner in 2001) are top sellers both here, in NZ and the UK, and Jane Tara's Bombshells (winner in 2000) went on to an acclaimed production in New York. Cerise de Gelder, winner in 2006 with her comedy Man of Snow, has gone on to become one of Melbourne's hottest playwrights.
