The 2017 Australian Writers’ Guild AWGIE Awards are now open for entries.
Every year the AWGIES celebrate performance writing at its best with writers from all fields vying for the highest honours on the Guild’s night of nights. With 2017 marking their 50th anniversary, this year's AWGIE Awards are set to be the biggest and best ever.
The AWGIE Awards are the only Australian stage, screen, radio and new media awards judged exclusively on the writer’s intention - the script - allowing the writer’s vision to shine and their craftsmanship to inspire.
The AWGIE Award categories this year include film, television, theatre, radio, interactive media, animation and documentary.
