Tinniswood Award 2022 – open for nominations

Applications are now open for the 2022 Tinniswood Award, for audio drama scripts broadcast or made available online between 1 October 2020 and 31 October 2021.

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

The award was established by WGGB and Society of Authors, to celebrate and encourage high standards in audio drama, and perpetuate the memory of the writer Peter Tinniswood.

We are deeply grateful to the Authors’ Licensing and Collecting Society for their generous sponsorship of the £3,000 prize.

The Tinniswood Award is normally presented at the BBC Audio Drama Awards in January/February each year. Last year the ceremony was held online due to Covid-19.

The deadline for applications is midnight, 3 October 2021.
