Cơ Hội Giành £2,200 Và Chuyến Đi Đến London - Cuộc Thi BBC International Radio Playwriting Competition 2018


Would you like to win £2,200 sterling, a trip to London and have your play broadcast across the world on BBC World Service? If so, the 2018 International Radio Playwriting Competition is now open to entries! Your potential audience on BBC World Service is huge – 77 million people around the world. What story might they like to hear? What new world can you introduce them to? Tell your stories with imagination and passion. Last year’s winners included a Canadian writer who had never written a play before and a Brazilian writer who’d never written for radio.


There are three prizes to be won.

  • Two first prizes – for the best radio plays by writers with either English as their first language or English as their second language. Both winners’ plays will be broadcast on BBC World Service;
  • In addition, there’s the Georgi Markov prize – for the most promising script, this prize gives the winner a chance to go to London for two weeks and work alongside BBC Radio Drama and with BBC World Service journalists.


  • Anyone aged 18 or over and living outside the UK – whether you’re an established writer, completely new or anywhere in between can apply;
  • Entrants should write a radio play of approximately fifty three minutes’ length on any subject of their choice.
  • The entrants warrant, by submitting plays, that the play:
    • is the original work of the entrants,
    • is not an adaptation of an earlier work (for example a novel),
    • will not have been professionally produced in any medium (an informal play-reading is acceptable; a play-reading with a professional director and in front of a non-paying audience is acceptable, but a performance involving payment to actors and/or a paying audience is not) before March 31, 2019,
    • will not have been offered for publication, performance or broadcast or produced in any other form or medium to any other person or company before March 31, 2019, and
    • will not have been entered for any other competition before March 31, 2019.


In order to enter you need to send:

  • A script for a 53 minutes radio play with up to 6 central characters – BBC is unable to return these, so make sure you keep a copy;
  • A synopsis which outlines your play is no longer than 400 words;
  • A completed entry form attached to your play and synopsis or you can complete and submit your entry online by uploading your play and synopsis along with your personal details.

Downloaded and completed entry form can be sent along with your play and synopsis, either:

By post to: International Playwriting Competition 2018, BBC Radio Drama Room 6015, Broadcasting House, Portland Place, London W1A 1AA, United Kingdom or to your local British Council Office or by email directly to: radioplay@bbc.co.uk

Deadline: January 31, 2018
