The „AURORA – the Drama Award of the City of Bydgoszcz” was established in January 2021 by Teatr Polski in Bydgoszcz. It is awarded for outstanding contemporary drama. Through the competition we want to focus on new dramatic texts that set the directions of contemporary theatre development. Among new dramatic texts we are searching for a new language and new forms of theatre. The call for texts to second edition of the competition was announced on 17th of January 2022.

In the first stage of the competition, a three-person jury composed of Davit Gabunia (acknowledged Georgian writer and playwright), Julia Holewińska (Polish playwright, deputy director of Teatr Polski in Bydgoszcz) and Agnieszka Lubomira Piotrowska (Russian drama translator, member of the Board of Section C of the Society of Authors ZAiKS) will select five final texts, which will be presented as stage sketches during the Prapremiery Festival. A Chapter will choose the winning text and grant AURORA – the Drama Award of the City of Bydgoszcz in the amount of PLN 50,000.
In the face of the Russian war against Ukraine the committee of this year’s edition of the contest for AURORA has reached the decisions to exclude all candidates representing the Russian Federation, to enable the participation for the texts written in Ukrainian and to extend the deadline for the application to the 15th of May 2022 (firstly the deadline was set on 15th of April).
