The Other Prize

The Other Prize is open to members of the University of Cambridge in statu pupillari. It will be awarded for an original, unperformed play of any length. Candidates may enter more than one play. The Prize will be a single award of £750, though a shared prize may be awarded in the event of two equally appropriate candidates; the Prize will not be awarded if no entries are of adequate quality. The Prize may not be awarded twice to the same person. Adjudication will be in two stages. A short-list will be selected by a panel consisting of one appointee of Churchill College, one of Homerton College Theatre Department, and one of the Marlowe Society. Final adjudication will be by the Literary Manager of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC). The Literary Managers of the RSC will run a one-day workshop on the winning entry with RSC actors. This will be with a view to production by the Marlowe Society during the following Michaelmas Term. Candidates must send four copies of their entry which should be in typescript and in loose-leaf form, and must not bear the author's name. They should be sent, with a covering note of the author's name, College, and home address to the Senior Tutor, Churchill College, Cambridge, CB3 0DS.

Entries should arrive by the end of the Lent Full Term 2009. The winner will be announced by the end of the Easter Term 2009.
