The annual Writers’ Guild Awards honour the cream of British film writing in the Best Screenplay and Best First Screenplay categories, at a high-profile, red-carpet ceremony in central London each January.

Our Celebrating the writer series features interviews with the winning screenwriters, plus video clips of the awarded work.
