The 24th BBC World Service International Radio Playwriting Competition was launched today. The British Council and Commonwealth Writers are partners on the initiative once again, along with new co-producers The Open University.

As a result, along with the two first prizes - the best radio play by a writer with English as their first language and the best by a writer with English as their second language, there’s a new category: The Georgi Markov prize for most promising script.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for writers outside the UK, as part of the winners' prize is a trip to London to see their play being recorded for broadcast on BBC World Service.

For full details, rules and how to enter see the BBC World Drama website.
