Submissions will be judged on the basis of artistic excellence and diversity.  All topics and subjects will be considered.  Special attention shall be given to those projects which reflect the goals of the Coalition:  to advance women’s work and women’s issues. 

The team that has been selected and the honorable mentions will be invited to be recognized at an awards ceremony in New York in October 2018.  Women outside of New York may send a designee to speak about their project and accept the award.

Teams of two or more women working together on the creative project may apply for the 2018 Collaboration Award. Applicants must be members in good standing of two different organizations and/or affiliates with The Coalition.

Quotes from past winners:

"The Award offers much-needed encouragement during this time of virulent anti-feminist, anti-arts, anti-culture rhetoric, --rhetoric and policy that have very real economic consequences for women trying to sustain a career in the theatre. As someone being told my work is 'too feminist' to be produced now, I depend on organizations like this one to keep me from losing heart."

-TD Mitchell playwright 2015 winner

“We are so honored to be accepting this award. One of the best aspects of making this very unconventional film was working together. We got it done using our creativity, mutual respect for one another, quality Skype-time with our families back home, plain old hard work, and as much good humor as we could muster. It means the world to us to have our film embraced by an organization that celebrates women in collaboration.”

-Jane Edith Wilson and Grace Lee, 2013 Winners

“It was and honor for Stefanie and I to receive the Collaboration Award.  It came at a critical moment for the DEVELOPMENT of Electric Baby as the award supported our work together on two DEVELOPMENTAL workshops and our world premiere production of the play at Quantum Theatre in Pittsburgh.  Not only did this award support our work financially it gave our collaboration recognition in the field.  Stefanie continues to be a key collaborator of mine on subsequent projects and having our relationship recognized publicly is invaluable.”

- Daniella Topol, Director, 2011 Winner

“New work needs momentum.  It’s simply not a reality that a play can be written in the attic and then magically find a production.  Or that one production will lead to a second or third production.  People need to hear about work.  They need to hear about the artists who make the work.  There is no question that this award not only helped The Electric Baby become a better play, but it gave the baby a life.”

- Stefanie Zadravec, Playwright, 2011 Winner

“The Collaboration Award’s encouragement of women working together is terrific.  It made all the difference in providing my collaborator and I with the time and support we needed to create a complex and dynamic theatre work.”

- Kristin Marting, Director, 2008 Winner

“The evening of the Collaboration Awards was imbued with theatrical magic.  Wendy directed an excerpt from my play, Birds, that captured the spirit of the play with great response from a wildly supportive audience. Birds is the third play of mine that we worked on together. It was a beautiful jumping off point for us in our process. It provided the opportunity for us to mine even deeper in our exploration of the world of this complicated play, and the support, enthusiasm and appreciation of this body of amazing women helped carry us through to the next step of our artistic journey.”

- Jen Maisel, Playwright, 2006 Winner
