Carlo Annoni International Playwriting Prize accepts plays on topics affecting the LGBTQ+ community, and the promotion of diversity in love, society, politics and culture.

We dedicate the 2020 Carlo Annoni Prize to all those individuals that fight to see their right to love respected both in Italy and in the world, and to those experiencing discrimination because of their identity.

Two plays (one in English and one in Italian) will be awarded the amount of 1.000 Euros each.

 Special Mentions:

  • ASYLUM SEEKERS: a special mention will be given to a play on the topic of asylum-seeking for those persecuted for their sexual orientation. 
  • DIFFUSION: a special mention will be given to a short play or video of a maximum of 10 minutes length to promote theatre with topics of diversity in schools, clubs, conferences, events and meetings or online and on social media platforms.
  • COMEDY: a special mention will be offered to a comedy play on relationship life.

Plays and videos must be submitted via email at info@premiocarloannoni.eu by 30th April 2020 

There is no participation fee required. 

We are happy to consider plays that have already been staged.

The prize ceremony will take place in September 2020.
