Since 1978, Noosa Arts Theatre has been running the National One-Act Playwriting Competition. With an $8,000 cash prize pool, including The Eleanor Nimmo Prize of $5,000 for Best Play, it attracts entries from playwrights throughout Australia, and many other countries. Scripts are judged anonymously by a professional panel of three industry experts. The three finalists are selected on the quality of the writing, not on subject matter; and the winning order is decided before the plays are presented in this Festival.
Location: Noosa Arts Theatre, 163 Weyba Road, Noosaville
