Entries will open for this year`s Script Writers Awards (SWANZ) on 15 August.
Appropriately for an event celebrating writers, last year`s inaugural bash was a most succinct affair. The passing out of gongs took a modest 45 mostly very merry minutes, leaving everyone plenty of time to party.
The presentations might stretch to 50 minutes this year, with the separation of the Drama category into two, for Best Script (from a series) and Best One-Off.
Last year`s offered but unentered categories of Best Radio Play and Best Documnetary Script remain on the menu, as do the two awards determined by committee rather than entry: the New Writer and Industry Mentorship awards.
Full details on how to enter are available by emailing NZWG.
The SWANZ gongs will be handed out on 24 November.
