One-Minute Play Festival submissions wanted

web site

The ArtsWells Festival Of All Things Art, is proud to present the Twelfth Annual International One-Minute Play Festival, and is looking for entries. There is a cash prize of $75 for first place entry, $50 for second and $25 for third. There is also an eventual plan to publish a collection of the plays from this year’s and previous festivals. Notable past entrants included Academy Award Winning Director Arthur Hiller, Illustrator of the Cartoon Strip Shermans Lagoon; Jim Toomey, Classical Guitarist; Liona Boyd; The Canadian Comedian Ensemble The Arrogant Worms; Author of Hard Core Logo Michael Turner to name a few.

We have four entry formats: Silent, Performed, Video/Audio and Excuses, all are eligible to win the aforementioned prizes. The only stipulation is that it must be performed, read or viewed in one minute or less. There is also the ever popular category of Excuses. This will include excuses as to why you can’t enter. Like the other entry formats this will boil down to creativity and execution and will be judged on letterhead, composition, humor and originality. This means that the subject matter and manner of the play or excuse itself is entirely open to personal interpretation.

All entries to be judged must be submitted by Sunday July 31st, 2011.

Entries may be submitted via mail, videotape, audiotape, e-mail, or in person but must be available on the night of July 31st where the live contestants will be judged during the ArtsWells Festival.

All entries will be judged during the performance night. Winners will be contacted by telephone or e-mail by September 1st, 2011.

All entrants shall receive a copy of the eventual publication for their own records, and the play’s performance rights shall remain privy to that of the author. Anyone interested in submitting an entry in a form other than that of print are encouraged to do so. Those submissions shall be kept in the archives of the International One-Minute Play Festival to be drawn upon for inclusion in a future documentary based upon this continuing festival.
