This year sees the introduction of a new Bruntwood Prize category: The North West Original New Voice Award and Residency. In recognition of the Prize’s Manchester home and to enable us to work closely with the winning playwright, this year the winner must be based in the North West of England and have not had a full-length play professionally produced for 12 performances or more in a professional venue. In addition to winning £8,000, they will also access an additional £10,000 fund dedicated to their professional development at the Royal Exchange Theatre during a bespoke one year residency.
We define the North West via the Arts Council England districts https://www.artscouncil.org.uk/sites/default/files/download-file/Map_area_boundaries.pdf
