1 1 4th World Sinophone Drama Competition for Young Playwrights Official Terms and Conditions I. About the Competition The World Sinophone Drama Competition for Young Playwrights (hereafter referred to as the Competition ) is open to young writers (ages 18 to 36) worldwide. It accepts scripts written in either Chinese or English, and seeks to encourage production of new dramatic works that reflect upon global Chinese culture from a variety of perspectives and enrich our understanding of Sinophone cultures, circulations, histories, and communities. For Chinese-language submissions, there are no specific requirements for content; for English-language submissions, we welcome new works of self-reflection from members of Sinophone communities, as well as those that explore encounters among the Sinophone and other cultural contexts. In today s world of highly globalized culture and art, we call upon the young playwrights of the world to turn their gaze towards and expand their understanding of global Sinophone cultures. We take the inherently hybrid and diverse locale of Taiwan as our main stage for engaging artists and audiences both in and beyond the Sinophone. We especially seek new works of hybridized cultural and dramatic aesthetics that will add new voices to Sinophone theatre and further invigorate the already diverse field of global Sinophone cultures. II. Awards Summary Winners of the competition will receive a monetary prize, a translation of their winning work (either from English to Chinese, or vice versa), and a bi-lingual e-publication of the winning work. The award ceremony and the Arts Festival of Script-readings of winning works will be held during July to September in In addition, a series of readings held by our partners around the world in the following three (3) years will offer winning playwrights an unprecedented opportunity for international circulation of their work. The collaborating organizers of this competition are from Taiwan, United States, Canada, United Kingdom,Singapore, mainland China, Macao, etc.) Please see the information below for further details about other prizes of the awards.
