The prestigious Griffin Award recognises an outstanding play or performance text that displays an authentic, inventive and contemporary Australian voice, with the winner receiving a $10,000 prize.

The award has a long history of recognising new talent and cementing the careers of Australian writers, as the Honour Board of Griffin Award winners attests.

The Griffin Award is generously supported by The Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.

Entries for the 2021 Griffin Award are now closed. We will announce the shortlisted writers in early June. Applications for the 2022 Griffin Award will open in November.
