Comedy Writing Award Shortlist announced!

We are delighted to announce the shortlist for this year’s Funny Women Comedy Writing Award!

The standard of entries this year has been particularly high, so in fact it’s a slightly longer list than usual.  It is a testament to the amount of talent out there writing and developing scripts.

The three finalists will be announced tomorrow after all the scripts have been reviewed by a panel of industry experts.  They will be invited to the final of the Funny Women Awards on Wednesday 28th September where the overall winner will be announced.
