SYLVANIA—Lourdes Drama Society announces its third annual One-Act Playwriting Competition. Last year’s competition garnered international attention receiving submissions from across the U.S. and Canada, with the winning plays premiering onstage at Lourdes University in the spring.

The competition is open to all playwrights 18 years of age and older. Entries must be one-act stage plays with performance times of eight to 15 minutes. Submissions are restricted to original dramatic works that have not been previously published or produced outside of an academic environment. Scripts are to be judged on concept, dramatic action, characterization and dialogue.

Cash awards include $250 for first place, $100 for second place and $50 for third place. The winning plays are also to be considered for production at Lourdes University as part of the Drama Society’s Festival of One Acts 2012.

Entries must be postmarked no later than Nov. 1. Winners will be announced and notified on Sunday, December 4.
