Launch of the Prize
New Dramaturgy by Female Authors
From the 1st of January to the 31st of March 2022, applications are open for the 2nd edition of the New Dramaturgy Award for Female Authorship, by Esta Noite Grita-se/ Companhia Cepa Torta, in partnership with the publisher Douda Correria.
This award aims to promote, recognize and publicize female dramaturgy in Portuguese.
The competition is open to all natural persons, of legal age, who identify with the female gender, whether cisgender or transgender, and who want to propose an original dramaturgical work that has never been performed.
The big change compared to the 1st edition of our award is the mentoring process, which will take place from June to September 2022, where 3 selected playwrights will have the opportunity for a period of discussion and possible improvement of the works presented with the monitoring of one of the members of the jury - Patrícia Portela, Joana Craveiro and Francisco Frazão.
The winning work will result in a prize of €750 for the author and will be included in the program of Esta Noite Grita-se and published in a book.
