Hidden River saw a need nearly 20 years ago for a competition in full-length plays, since so few were available. The competitions seemed focused almost exclusively on short plays, with very little opportunity for playwrights writing full-length scripts. So, we established our Hidden River Arts Playwrighting Award. We are now expanding to a second award, The Hidden River Review Short Play Award, since we are launching an online journal where a short play winner could be published. We plan to shortly include a screenplay award – both a full-length screenplay and a short film script. So, please bookmark our site for all future announcements.
