2016 TF Evans Shaw Society £500 Writing Award (entry £8/£5)

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 tfevansaward@shawsociety.org.uk.

Deadline:  31 March 2016
