Courtesy of an e-mail from the Toronto Fringe Festival, here is a contest that writers would be interested in – there are CASH PRIZES ranging from $100 to $1250, and the winner gets a spot in Fringe 2013!
On September 12th, 2012 applications will be available for the Fringe New Play Contest, sponsored by Exclamation Foundation in association with macIDeas. Supporting the development of new Canadian plays, the contest is open to all playwrights/writers who are permanent residents of Canada. Prizes will be given to the top three plays: $1250 to the winning playwright, $200 to the second place playwright, $100 to the third place playwright. In addition, the winning playwright will receive a spot in the Fringe 2013 line-up (worth approximately $750 in application fees) and the services of a production consultant to help promote your show. Only one entry per playwright is permitted.
If you would like to apply, you will be asked to submit a completed entry form, a copy of the script and an entry fee of $27.50. The final deadline for all entries is Oct 26, 2012 at 5:00pm or when 80 entries have been received.
