We extend our deepest gratitude to all the playwrights who participated in our contest. We would also like to thank the University of New Orleans Creative Writing Workshop and Department of Film, Theater, and Communication Arts for their careful and experienced judging. The Festival is staunchly committed to nurturing emerging writers, and the abundance of fresh talent we receive every year is stunning.
