Congratulations to our winners, and biggest thanks to all who participated. We were thrilled to receive submissions from Latin America, Eastern and Western Europe, East Asia, and the Middle East, with an equally broad range of styles and themes—from the comical to the lyrical to the historical to the political.
The three winning radio plays will be produced by Play for Voices and published in Words without Borders, beginning this summer. Please keep an eye out at playforvoices.com and wordswithoutborders.org for more information.
