This annual writing competition is held in memory of T.F. Evans, longtime editor of the Shaw Society Journal. The prize is offered for an additional scene to a play by Bernard Shaw. It will be offered to the entry that most impresses the judges, who will be looking for that combination of features for which Shaw was famous: wit and wordplay within a social and political context. The T.F. Evans Award is open to all.
Prize: The winning entry will receive £500. The winning entry will also be performed at a Shaw Society event.
What you pay: The entry fee is £8, though a concession rate of £5 is offered to students.
What to submit: Full entry guidelines can be found on their website.
- Entrants can submit as many entries as they wish, but the fee must be paid for each entry.
- Total length must be between 2,500 and 4,000 words.
- The scene can be set in any time frame and can take place before, during, or after any other scene in any of Shaw’s plays.
How to apply: The name of the entrant must not appear anywhere on the play text but must appear on a separate title page.
Entries can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: 31 March 2016
