ACLF/Reading Australia Playwriting Competition


Congratulations to Eric from Dural Public School in NSW, the winner of our inaugural ACLF/Reading Australia Playwriting competition.

“Eric’s winning scene leapt from the page onto the stage with the lively panache of a born dramatist! Congratulations,” said Ursula Dubosarsky, Australian Children’s Laureate and judge.

Eric wins a signed copy of Pierre’s Not There, a Booktopia gift voucher worth $75.00 (and an equivalent voucher for his school library) AND a virtual classroom visit from Ursula! Students at Eric’s school will get the opportunity to perform the winning scene with Ursula, followed by a Q&A session.

Selena from North Rocks Public School in NSW.


Special mention goes to both students for their excellent stories and gorgeous puppets and drawings.

Thank you to the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund for their support of the ACLF and to the Reading Australia team for partnering with us in this fabulous competition.
