The Arch and Bruce Brown Foundation will accept submissions for its 2016 Playwriting Competition between March 1 and May 31, 2016. All submissions must be made electronically and received by midnight on May 31.
Only full-length works (dramas, comedies, musicals, screenplays) are eligible for consideration. All works submitted must be original and in English. All must concern lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or genderqueer life and must be based on, or directly inspired by, a historical person, culture, work of art, or event.
There is no entry fee. Prizes are as follows: First Prize, $3,000; Second Prize, $1,500; Honorable Mentions, $500. Prizewinners will be announced before the end of the year.

The foundation also offers grants to not-for-profit production companies to offset expenses in producing theatrical works (plays, musicals, operas, choral works, orchestral works with text) and film or video. All works must be based on, or inspired by, history and must concern LGBT life. Proposals may be submitted throughout the year.
