PLAY WRITERS COMPETITION (article first published : 2000-01-3)

Amfest which has traditionally been run as a one act play festival in various venues over the last 20 years, will celebrate its 21st anniversary this year by presenting a multi-faceted non professional arts festival. This will be held in the University of the Witwatersrand theatre complex in Johannesburg from July 31 to August 19.

The Amfest 2000 New South African One Act Play Writers Competition is open to non professional writers who must submit details of any previous works published or performed. The play must be in English or Afrikaans only (regretfully due to adjudication restraints) and should run for 20 to 45 minutes and have a minimum of two characters. The script must be typed (preferably in double spacing) and a synopsis of the setting, characters and as much stage direction as possible must be provided. Amfest 2000 reserves the right to make copies of the script for later use (with the authorís permission). Writers must make arrangements to deliver and collect their scripts.

The cost is R50 per script and prize money will be allocated between one and three prizes at Amfestís discretion. As part of the winning prize, if feasible, the play will be presented as an enacted play-reading during Amfest 2000 and will be performed at Amfest 2001 if a suitable group can be found. The closing date for entries is May 31, 2000.

Details from Noel Mcdonald on (011) 636-936 or 475-584. General application forms can be found on the artslink.co.za website at http://www.artslink.co.za/amfest, under Amfest 2000.
