2019 marks the 90th Anniversary of the creation of UNIMA. To honour this date, UNIMA is holding an open competition for young writers interested in authoring a script or concept for the puppet theatre that will be performed as part of the UNIMA 90th Anniversary celebrations.

UNIMA is in search of a special script/concept for the puppet theatre. This creation will be workshopped into four distinct productions that will be performed in four separate geographical regions of the world: Africa, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Americas.

Open call to young puppet theatre authors aged 18-35!

The selected author will receive an award of 2,000 euros. The awardee will also have the opportunity to have his/her script or concept performed forming the basis for four productions that will be presented in an international network.
