Eugene O’Neill Theater Center: National Playwrights Conference

Since 1964, the National Playwrights Conference has developed more than 600 new plays. Scripts will be accepted for NPC 2018 through October 13, 2017. The O’Neill’s open submissions policy allows any writer to submit their work for consideration, no agents or nominations needed. 

Works are chosen through our Open Submissions policy.  (See all 2017 Finalists).

In the years since its inception the National Playwrights Conference has developed more than 600 plays.  During the Conference, playwrights live on the grounds of the O’Neill for a full month and each engages in a week-long process of rehearsals culminating in two script-in-hand public readings.  Up to eight playwrights are selected for this intensive laboratory each summer.  Conference playwrights represent a wide range of experience from those working on a first play to Broadway veterans; directors and actors have also worked on and off Broadway, in film, and in regional theaters, and represent emerging artists and seasoned professionals.

For information on applying as a playwright and the application process, please visit our Submission Info and Open Submission Process page.  With other questions, please call the Literary Office, at (860) 443-5378 x227

CINDY Awards: International Entry Deadline

Nearly 58 years ago, OSCAR was being presented for the finest in feature films.  The EMMY Award continued to honor broadcasting program excellence.  The CINDY Award was presented for the first time to those producing informational content in 16mm film format.

When the Cinema in Industry (CINDY) Awards premiered in 1959, things were pretty straight forward.  But today, there are multiple delivery platforms and even more subject matter categories and applications for informational programming.  From webinars, infomercials and video games to online interactive training, commercials and phone apps, you can still find an appropriate spot at the CINDY Awards where your digital media production efforts fit right in.

If you craft words, images, sound effects and music into digital content that captures audience attention and delivers the desired outcome, there is room for your work at the CINDY Awards.  For information: on why you should participate this year and discover who has received the award in the past, click: www.cindys.com
