A Novitiate Prize may also be awarded at the jury’s discretion in recognition of the work of an unproduced playwright.

This competition is open to all Albertan playwrights whose primary residence has been Alberta for at least one year immediately prior to the submission deadline.

Interested playwrights will have until 11:59 pm MST on MARCH 31, 2020 to submit their work.
