Inaugural Ohio State University - Newark New Play Contest

web site

Rules and information:

  1. The contest is open to anyone, anywhere; plays must be written in English.
  2. Plays must be unproduced and unpublished, up to and including the contest deadline.
  3. Please use the standard playwriting format for manuscripts.
  4. Playwrites may submit as many manuscripts as they like; however, each entry must be in a separate envelope. Please make sure that each manuscript does not contain your name anywhere, but do include your name on a separate piece of paper, along with ful contact information, including an email address. (This is to ensure that judging is blind.) Electronic submissions are not allowed.
  5. Plays are to be full-length words; a collection of short plays is not an acceptable substitute.
  6. There are no restrictions on cast size or subject matter.
  7. The absolute deadline for submissions to be received is June 30, 2011. Winners will be announced on or before September 1, 2011.
  8. Third prize is $100, and second prize is $300. The first prize winner will receive $500, and the first-prize play will be given a staged reading during the first six months of 2012, on a date to be selected. The playwright is welcome to attend; regrettably, OSU-Newark cannot defray expenses.
  9. In addition to the prize winners, there will be an indeterminate number of honorable mentions, designated by a certificate.
  10. Winners will be notified by individual emails; unsuccessful candidates will receive a mass email.
  11. Following the contest, all manuscripts except the first-prize winner will be shredded.
  12. Send all manuscripts to:
