Stage and Cinema film and theatre reviews

Theater Review Writing Contest


Stage and Cinema announces a writing contest for theater reviews. 


First place is $20; second place is $15; third place is $10.  Each winner will have his or her winning review published in Stage and Cinema and will receive press passes (for two) to review a New York City play or musical.  Honorable mentions will have their entries published with their permission.


The entry does not need to be a currently running production, as long as it is a theater review (not film or television).  The shows for which winners will receive press passes are as yet unknown, but will be Broadway or Off Broadway productions.


DEADLINE EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 1, 2008.  Winners will be announced on the web site and on the Stage and Cinema mailing list on October 17. 


Minimum length is 500 words; maximum length is 2000 words.  (Approximately 1-4 pages single-spaced or 2-8 pages double-spaced).


You may enter more than one review to compete, but only one review per author will be declared a winner (for example, no one person will win both first and second place). 


Please email your review to  Include your name and telephone number on the review.  Send the review as both an attachment (in either MS Word or as a Rich Text file) and copy and paste the review into the body of the email message (as a precaution, in case we are unable to open the attachment for any reason).
