** DUE TO COVID-19 WE HAVE MADE THE DIFFICULT DECISION TO CANCEL THE 2021 WRITERS’ GUILD AWARDS. READ THE FULL ANNOUNCEMENT **
The Writers’ Guild Awards have been celebrating writers, and writing, since they launched in 1961. They allow writers to honour their peers, and recognise our work in supporting freedom of speech.
The Awards are funded solely through sponsorship, and WGGB members take a leading role – sitting on juries to select nominees and winners, and in the organisation of the ceremony itself.
And read our Celebrating the writer series of interviews with Best Screenplay and Best First Screenplay winners.
You can also keep up-to-date with Awards news in the section below.
All queries on the Writers’ Guild Awards should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
