1 The IPF is open to any author regardless of nationality, but all plays should be in English.

2    Plays must be full length and previously unproduced, estimated playing time, not less than 90
minutes and not more than 120 minutes. (Just over a minute a page is a rough guide, when scripts are typed as per rule 3 below.)

3    Scripts must be clearly typed on bond paper, double-spaced with wide margins, pages must be numbered and the text securely bound. Plays must be submitted using a pseudonym to ensure impartiality and the author’s real name removed from all pages of the script.

Whilst all reasonable care will be taken, the IPF does not accept responsibility for loss of,
or damage to, submitted scripts.

4    Authors must guarantee that they have sole rights to all matter contained within the play. Any play accepted for production elsewhere before the judges’ decision is announced will be disqualified.

5    The Warehouse Theatre Company reserves the right to buy the exclusive option to produce
any play entered subject to contract.

6    Authors of the short-listed entries should make all reasonable efforts to attend a Press Reception and to be available to attend rehearsals and readings as required prior to the Festival weekend in March 2013.

7    The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence concerning the results can be entered into.
