Unique STAGE International Script Competition Accepting Submissions
Submission Deadline is December 1, 2011. Award is $10,000 for Best New Play About Science & Technology
The STAGE International Script Competition, now in its fifth cycle, awards a $10,000 USD prize for the best new play about science and technology in content and/or form.
The prize is given at a public awards event with distinguished professionals - including winners of Nobel and Pulitzer Prizes - from the worlds of theatre, film, science and/or technology, to be held in conjunction with a staged reading/performance/demonstration with a cast of professional actors. In addition, the winning playwright will have access to advice and guidance from professional theatre and film artists as well as experts in the fields of science, engineering and technology. Other development opportunities for the winning script may be possible.
STAGE – Scientists, Technologists and Artists Generating Exploration – a unique collaboration between art and science, began as a partnership between the Professional Artists Lab and the California NanoSystems Institute at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
