The Tinniswood Award

The Tinniswood Award is presented annually for the best original audio drama script of the year.

The Tinniswood Award was established by the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain and Society of Authors to perpetuate the memory of Peter Tinniswood as well as to celebrate and encourage high standards in radio drama. Previous winners include Morwenna Banks, Rachel Joyce, Stephen Wyatt, Nick Warburton, Christopher William Hill and ColinTeevan.

The 2018 winner will collect a £3,000 prize and we are deeply grateful to the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society for their generous sponsorship.

Entry to the 2019 Award is open!
