Each year Playwrights Guild of Canada hosts an annual awards competition honouring Canadian playwrights in a wide range of categories.

Funded and presented by the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto Foundation, the Robert Beardsley Award for Young Playwrights is granted to a young playwright within the GTA for the creation of a one-act play script.

The entrant to the competition must be a playwright under the age of 30 at time of submission, residing within the Greater Toronto Area, who is pursuing post secondary education. The winner is awarded a monetary prize of $500.

Applicants for this award do not need to be PGC members. If you are applying for this award and not a member, you will receive a PGC Student Membership once your submission has been received.

A shortlist of the best three entries will be announced in September 2020. The winner will be announced during the Tom Hendry Awards in October 2020.
