2016 Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation Playwriting Competiton now open!

Found in: News

The Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation are looking for submissions for their 2016 playwriting competition!
The Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation holds yearly literary competitions for works that concern LGBT (lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender) life and that are based on, or inspired by, a historical person, culture, event or work of art.

The eligibility criteria is as follows:

  • Your script must involve lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or genderqueer characters and/or themes.
  • Your script must portray a historical period or incident. The past must be central, not incidental, to the work. (For more information on the meaning of “historical,” go to the “What Is Historical?” page.)
  • You must submit a brief statement, no longer than one page, describing how the script fulfills these requirements. This statement should explain the time period and historical issues involved.
  • If your work has been produced in any form (workshop, staged reading, or full production), your submission must also include a synopsis of the work’s production history. Works that have never been produced are welcome.

There is no entry fee for this competition. The prizes are as follows: First Prize, $3,000; Second Prize, $1,500; Honorable Mentions, $500. Prizewinners will be announced before the end of the year.

The submission period will run between March 1 to May 31 2016.

For more information about the submissions process or any other queries, please refer to the AABB Foundation website.
