Short + Sweet Sydney 2024 will be introducing a new award category:
The Unique Concept Award – This award is designed to put a spotlight on plays that have an original or unique premise. We are looking for plays that push boundaries and are utterly like no other, whether that be in structure, premise, tone or style.

2. A Short + Sweet Sydney Blog

This blog will follow up on Short +Sweet Sydney alumni, we will have interviews, thought pieces, insights and more. If you have ever been part of short + Sweet Sydney and have a project youd like to share, let us know what your up to and we'll post about it.
