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 Stephen Wyatt, Murray Gold, Morwenna Banks, Julian Simpson and Christopher William Hill.

We are deeply grateful to the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society for their generous sponsorship of the £2,000 prize.

For further information please contact Sarah Woodley at the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain by email
