Entries Open for SCrIBE Scriptwriting Competition

Deadline: 31 July 2018

Entries are now open for the Fleur du Cap Award-winning SCrIBE Scriptwriting Competition. Original scripts are sought, in English, no longer than 40 pages or 80 minutes long.

The competition was won in 2017 by PEN SA member Darryl Bristow-Bovey.

SCrIBE is a platform for South African writers to develop their work, with a number of prizes which changes each year depending on the most suitable support for a designated writer and script. The finalists of the competition have the opportunity for their play to be presented at a staged reading then receive feedback from the professional director and actors involved as well as the audience members. Prizes have included winning scripts being produced for a run at a professional theatre, mentorship programmes and further script development support.

The entry form may be found on the Imbewu Trust website.
