ENTRY FAQ- What should my script look like?
As the Bruntwood Prize Co-ordinator- I get questions from people interested in the Prize to email@example.com. In the run up to the June 6th- 6pm…
We ask that anyone submitting a script to exclusively own and control all copyright and all other related rights to their work.
As we aspire to produce winning scripts- the submitted play must be available for production and unattached to any other theatre or company. Any scripts that have been professionally optioned, produced or published will be disqualified. However- amateur performances do not apply.
But what is the difference between professional and amateur here? Unproduced means the play cannot have received a professional production in any form, anywhere in the world, EXCLUDING up to two professional rehearsed readings.
However- a winning script can have been produced in an amateur way- as long as you still hold all creative rights.
If you are uncertain as to whether your production was amateur or professional- generally the deciding factor is whether the script was self produced or was attached to a professional producer. For example- a production you sold tickets for, but self produced is amateur for the purposes of the Prize.
