The R E Ross Trust Playwrights' Script Development Awards

The R E Ross Trust Playwrights' Script Development Awards foster Victoria's theatre industry by helping Victorian writers develop their scripts, with the emphasis on text enhancement rather than production.

These prestigious awards provide writers with grants of between $3000 and $10,000 to enhance their scripts through workshops with a Victorian-based theatre company or group, director or dramaturg. 

Recipients of the 2014 awardwinners were announced in July 2014.
