The Rodney Seaborn Playwrights Award encourages the development of new Australian plays or performing arts projects emphasizing positive values.
The Award is offered each year for the development of a play or other approved performing arts project.
The Award provides financial assistance for playwrights during the writing or development of a play or a project. It is not intended as a prize for a finished work.
The Award may also assist with production costs, workshops, restaging, publishing or touring. A recipient may be working alone or jointly with others including writers, composers, designers, directors and producers.
The $20,000 Award will be made in two stages: $15,000 in the first instance and the remaining $5000 upon receipt of satisfactory progress reports.
Closing Date: 28 September 2017.
