The UK-Ukraine Radio Drama Competition, organised by the National Radio Company of Ukraine and the British Council, in partnership with Mystetskyi Arsenal, offers a unique opportunity for aspiring writers, with the winning play broadcast to hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians.

This joint British-Ukrainian initiative will promote and professionalize a new generation of radio dramaturgs and production staff in Ukraine, with training for aspiring radio writers, producers, directors and studio technicians. These activities will be complemented by a competition for emerging radio playwrights, with the winning play produced and broadcast by the National Radio Company of Ukraine in January 2019, and its author awarded a prize of 25,000 UAH.

To enter the playwriting competition, writers should submit the text of their original play, along with a synopsis (in PDF or DOC), and fill out the online form. We encourage applicants to read the radio playwriting tips by BBC World Drama here, and the terms and conditions of the competition, before submitting their play. Submissions are open from April 25th to June 30th, 2018.

Winners will be determined by a jury, which will include representatives of the National Radio Company of Ukraine, Mystetskyi Arsenal, British production company Rockethouse, and Ukrainian experts in literature and theatre.
