Submissions are accepted between March 1 and June 1, annually. One winning playwright receives a $1,000 cash award and an all-expense paid trip to the annual SETC Convention, where both a critique and staged reading of the winning play are held. The winning play is also considered for online publication and a feature in Southern Theatre magazine.
To be eligible for the contest, the submitting playwright must be a current member of SETC, reside in the SETC
region, OR attend a college or university within the SETC region. The SETC region includes Alabama, Florida,
