The Tinniswood Award

The Tinniswood Award was established by the Society of Authors and the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain to perpetuate the memory of Peter Tinniswood as well as to celebrate and encourage high standards in radio drama.

The Tinniswood Award is presented annually to the best original audio drama script of the year. We are deeply grateful to the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society for their generous sponsorship of the £1,500 prize.
