One Act Playwriting Competition

The object of this Competition is to promote new writing for the theatre. It is administered by NDFA and judged by a Panel of Judges: the Chairman and Judges of the Panel are appointed by the Council of NDFA.

The GEORGE TAYLOR MEMORIAL AWARD was initiated in 1979, in memory of the founder of AMATEUR STAGE. The Award is held for one year and the Winner receives a certificate and a cash prize of 100 which is funded jointly by NODA and NDFA.

The Award is open to any piece of original theatre accepted by and performed at any NDFA festival between 1 July and 30 June. The play, not the production, must be recommended by the Festival Organiser and by the Adjudicator. The play must be unpublished at the time of entry and have received fewer than five public performances. Should it be accepted for publication prior to the announcement of the Awards, it will be automatically disqualified. The entry form must be signed by the Playwright and the Festival Organiser. The entry fee is 5. An entry form is to be found at the back of the NDFA Directory - please make further copies as necessary.
