Winnipeg Fringe New Play Contest Winners Announced!
To support Canadian artists in their quest to bring new work to the stage, we launched the inaugural Winnipeg Fringe New Play Contest this fall. We asked artists to submit their original, unproduced plays and musicals for a chance to win a free spot in the 2018 Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival.
We were very pleased to receive 36 entries and here are the three prize winners:
1st Place - Emma Leck, Victoria, BC, “Drops in a Broken Fountain”
2nd Place ($250) - Frances Koncan, Winnipeg, MB, “Women of the Fur Trade”
3rd Place ($100) - Daphne Finlayson, Winnipeg, MB, “The Committee”
We’d like to offer a special “Thank You” to our four New Play Contest jurors for their hours of reading and deliberating: Sharon Bajer, Krista Jackson, Rory Runnells and Ari Weinberg.
