In 2010, BBC would be celebrating 50 years of African drama. As usual there's the yearly playwriting competition. Guess who will be judging the 2010 African Performance Competition shortlist? Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka. And that's more reason to get imagination working and sit down real tight to write that award-winning script.
Winning authors will be paid a rights fee of £1000, £850, £650 or £500 depending on where their play comes in the competition. They will also have their play produced and aired on the BBC World Service
