It has been nearly a year since the Forgotten Writers Foundation in Alexandria, Egypt joined with Democracy Chronicles in New York City to release the “Seven Dictators Playwright Competition” – free to all artists worldwide. The original deadline for the competition, January 1, 2015, is right around the corner. However, as some of you know, email-related issues have created trouble for a few authors and we have decided that it makes sense to announce a one month extension on our deadline. The new deadline for submissions is February 1, 2015.
We hope this gives a few playwrights the opportunity to perfect their submissions.
We are honored to collaborate together with artists across the world on this competition and we look forward to receiving more of your great plays! The playwrights who submitted their work already have produced some amazing original political art. Thank you for your continued support!
Here again are the “Seven Dictators Play-writing Competition” guidelines.
About the Organizers of Seven Dictators:
The Forgotten Writers Foundation:
Based in the ancient city of Alexandria on Egypt’s Nile River, the Forgotten Writers Foundation discusses global, social and humane causes through art. It releases story competitions on topics that were never tackled before through literature, topics that are challenging for writers, interesting and new for readers. See Forgotten Writer’s 2012/2013 play-writing competition results for “Women’s Domination” and the 2011/2012 competition results book publication that collected the submitted plays about ” The Resurrection of Ancient Egypt”.
