Launched in 2009, the Papatango New Writing Prize is the biggest playwriting award in the UK, attracting more annual entries than any other. Despite this, it is also unique in offering personal feedback, supporting new writers and generating new work for the entire sector.


The Prize has long led provision for emerging playwrights. The first - and still only annual - playwriting award to guarantee its winner a full production, publication, fee and royalties, it has changed the landscape for new writing.

Each year the Prize expands to offer even more to early-stage writers, championing people excluded from theatre.

The Papatango New Writing Prize was the first and remains the only annual award to guarantee its winner a full production as well as publication, £7500 fee and royalties. It accelerates brilliant new talent.


Feedback is also available to anyone who wants it, to help explain readers’ decisions and offer suggestions for next steps.
