Entries are now being invited for the 2013 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting. The winner of the 2013 prize will receive £16,000 – making it the largest prize for playwrights in the UK. There will also be three Judges’ Awards of £8,000 each. All four award winners will have the chance to develop their play with the Royal Exchange, with a view to production. In addition, leading theatre publishers Nick Hern Books will publish all winning plays that receive a production at the Exchange, ensuring that the plays reach an even wider audience and have the opportunity of a vibrant afterlife. Writers have until 3 June to submit their scripts which, unlike other competitions, are entered anonymously.
