Rules and Requirements

12th Annual Playwork Awards

These are the five awards for 2022:

Recipients of an 11th Annual Playwork Award are not eligible to be nominated for the same award this year but may be nominated for a different award. Individuals or organisations may be nominated for more than one award [provided they fulfill the context].

You may nominate any individual, group of individuals, organisation or part of an organisation who can demonstrate they fit the context that the judges are looking for. You may also nominate yourself.

This year we are trying a different nomination process. We are asking the nominator and the nominee to write a short piece of not more than 500 words each [see How to write a nomination]. If the judging panel wants more information they will then contact the nominator and/or the nominee to get it.

As part of the Awards Ceremony on Tuesday 1 March 2022, it is intended to make available information about all the shortlisted nominees in a small A5 booklet. In order for this to happen, we require that you submit 2 pages, A5 portrait size. about the nominee with the nomination.

All nominations must be in by midnight Friday 11 February 2022. Visit our guide on how to write a nomination here.
