   DID YOU KNOW?  
 

Have you wondered why there are different numbers of nominees in a category for Drama, Comedy and Musical?  It is based on the number of shows in the category.  If there are 10 or less shows, there are 3 nominations.  If there are 11 to 20 shows, there are 4 nominations.  There are 5 nominations if there are 21 or more shows in the category.  So, the more shows in a category, more nominations are permitted.

For Adjudicator awards, the criteria is different.  The Adjudicator may nominate up to four nominees in the category or may simply choose the winner.  More on the Adjudicator Awards in the next "Did You Know".

Entry Guidelines:

  1. Open to any Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

  4. Plays cannot have been previously produced, published, contracted or commissioned by a professional theatre.
  5. Winning plays will be given a professional workshop week and public staged reading in January, 2018 at Queen's University. The winning playwrights will be invited to attend and may be asked to appear as a guest in some classes offered by the Dan School of Drama and Music. The workshops will also be open to attendance by students of the Dan School of Drama and Music. By entering the competition, the playwright agrees to this provision.
  6. Winning plays will be distributed to some classes at the Dan School of Drama and Music in the fall term, 2017 for students to prepare/study prior to observing the workshops/staged readings. By entering the competition, the playwright agrees to this provision.

Submission Procedure:

  2. An entry fee of $55CAD will be charged for each submitted play. Accepted forms of payment are Visa or Master Card only.
  3. Submit one PDF copy of the play entered. The playwright's name must not appear anywhere in the text of the entry, only on the Entry Form. The preferred font is Times or Courier in 12-point size. The pages of the document should be numbered with the title of the play in the header or footer. The PDF should be saved with only the title as the file name (e.g. AMidsummerNightsDream.pdf).
  4. Entries will only be accepted through email. Send entries to drama@queensu.ca
  5. Entries involving music in an integral way should be accompanied by an MP3 file of the recorded music and lyrics. Sheet music will also be accepted, but please ensure that all reference to the composer, lyricist and/or playwright is excluded from the submission.
  6. Entries are handled with care and confidentiality, but the Dan School of Drama and Music cannot assume responsibility for lost or damaged files. Receipt of entry will be confirmed by a reply email.
