The Martin-Lysicrates Prize is now in its third year. It’s the only playwriting competition that is judged by its intended audience—11-14 year-olds.

Playwrights submit the first 10-15 minutes of a new play for young people aged 11-14. The top three plays receive a week’s rehearsal with a professional team of artists and are then performed before an audience of children who will vote for the winning play. Adults don’t get to vote!

For the first time The Lysicrates Foundation is partnering with the Australian Theatre for Young People (ATYP).

The winning playwright receives a full commission of $15,000 to complete the play. A cash prize of $1,000 goes to each of the two runners-up.

The Martin-Lysicrates event will be held at Riverside Theatres on 22 August.

After the event, online audiences can vote on the plays, which will be professionally filmed and available for view on the Martin-Lysicrates website. The winner of the online voting will receive a further cash prize of $2,000.
