Marion Thaler Brown Audio Drama Scriptwriting Competition
The MTB Audio Drama Scriptwriting Competition celebrates good old-fashioned storytelling with a $250 first prize and $100 second-place prize. All genres considered and authors retain all script rights. The best tip the judges have for entrants is to be sure your play is truly an audio drama. Close your eyes and imagine hearing what you have put on the page. Is that enough to engage the listeners in the story and to make them truly understand what is going on? The competition frequently gets scripts with stage directions still in them. This is obviously not audio drama. The key to a good audio drama is to use narration and dialogue to let listeners know what they should be "seeing." This can truly be a visual medium if written correctly.

  • Deadline: May 28, 2017
  • Application Fee: Free
  • Eligibility: Please keep to one entry per author. The script should be your original work/story (no adaptations of another author’s works) Please keep the script “family friendly”Avoid incorporating swearing, which for this context includes “damn,” “hell,” “God” etc. Avoid implicit or implied sexual context. Make sure your script is action/plot driven. Scripts should run no longer than 30 minutes
