It is a competition for anyone resident outside Britain, to write a 53-minute radio drama for up to six characters.

There are two categories: one for writers with English as their first language and one for writers with English as their second language.

The two winners will come to London and see their play made into a full radio production, which will then be broadcast on the BBC World Service.

They will also each receive a £2,000 prize and there are certificates for runners-up.

The play must be in English, unpublished and must not have been previously produced in any medium.

Whether you're experienced, new, or somewhere in between, we want to hear from you.

Just check the click rules and how to enter sections to find out more about sending us your play.
