Monologue Playwriting Contest
$50 PRIZE awarded every three months
With over 100,000 working actors, the need for high quality audition monologues is greater than ever and actors are turning to the internet to find material. For example, 1.5 million people search for monologues online every month!
Enter AuditionArt's Monologue Playwriting Contest, which is adjudicated by the Bloomington Playwrights Project, an organization devoted to playwrights for the past 32 years. The mission of this contest: create the strongest monologue audition database available for actors by connecting them with the original and talented voices of skilled playwrights - that's you.
Every three months a monologue is chosen by a panel from the Bloomington Playwrights Project, and the winner receives a $50 cash prize, along with a $100 Grand Prize to the playwright of the year's best monologue. No fee to enter and enter as often as you like through the submission form below.
The next deadline for the contest is Mar. 1, 2012 with the first cash prize announced and awarded in the first week of the new year. Winners will be announced and cash prizes awarded every 3 months (March, June, Sep, Dec) during the first week of the month.
