Since 1978, Noosa Arts Theatre has been running the National
One-Act Playwriting Competition. With The Nimmo Prize
for Best Play ($5,000), 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.

During the Festival, the audience is asked at each performance to vote for the ‘Nancy Cato Audience Choice Award’. Presentation of awards takes place after the final performance.

Noosa Arts Theatre is proud to offer this rather unique
opportunity to aspiring and established playwrights and
showcase the finalists as part of the Noosa Alive Festival.
