Submission Deadline: Midnight March 1, 2024 (your time zone)
Our 20th Anniversary festival will feature a combination of brand new work and some of our favourite plays from the Gi60 vaults. We are very excited about reaching this milestone and we want to make this a truly memorable festival. Over the last twenty years one thing has remained central to our mission. Gi60 is open to everybody; all you need is an idea and an internet connection. 
Please email all submissions to screammedia@yahoo.com.
We have been reading thousands of plays over the last few months in preparation for Gi60 2024 so there is no need to send anything previously submitted. If we choose a piece of your work from a previous Gi60 we will contact you to get your permission to re-stage it.
Gi60 2024 will be performed live at the following times:
• Gi60 US: May 15 -19. The Tank NYC, Manhattan, US
• Gi60 UK: Sept 25 - 26 stage@leeds, Leeds, UK 
Thank you for your support over the last twenty years, it has meant the world to us.

The Guidelines (The important stuff):
• Submissions must not last longer than 60 seconds.
• Submissions should be sent in the body of your email, as well as in an attachment.*
• ALL submissions should be in RTF or Word format only: NO PDF DOCUMENTS.*
• Scripts in PDF format WILL NOT be read.*
• The Title of your play should be in the subject line of your email.
• You may submit as many plays as you wish, but only one submission per email.
• All work must be totally original and the author's own work.
• Include your name and address/geographic location before the title of your work.
• Plays should not have been previously produced.
• Please do not submit plays that have previously been submitted to Gi60.
• Entries from schools must include a teacher's contact and School name, in addition to the writers.
*We receive between 700-900 submissions a year; by including the text of your play in the body of the email, it saves play readers time as they do not need to not have to open attachments. If your play is selected, the attachments in Word/RTF make it easier for us to then share those scripts with the creative teams. We’re not trying to make things difficult, we’re just trying to ensure that we have enough time to read everything.
Email all submissions to: screammedia@yahoo.com prior to the submission deadline of 03/01/2024 (see above for details)
