Bill Broyles Award

web site

The Bill Broyles Award is given for a distinguished play or screenplay by a playwright or screenwriter, dealing with U.S. Marine Corps heritage or Marine Corps life.

Submission requirements: Submission must include a brief synopsis of the work, as well as a copy of the play or screenplay.

The Marine Corps Heritage Foundation awards program will be accepting submissions for 2017 awards starting October 7. Each year, the Foundation presents a series of awards to both Marines and civilians, to recognize their exemplary work in advancing and preserving Marine Corps history. Individuals will be honored at the Foundation’s annual Awards Ceremony on April 29, 2017.

All winners receive a $1,000 cash prize, a medallion and a commemorative brick along the Semper Fidelis Memorial Park pathway at the Marine Corps Heritage Center.

Applicants may self-nominate or nominate another individual for his/her work. If the piece is selected for an award, the awards committee will contact the applicant for any additional information needed to get in touch with the author/creator of the original work.

Applicants who are nominating someone else´s work must indicate this in the overview that is part of each submission detailed below. Submissions must be submitted electronically in PDF form, by website URL (in the case of blogs/dispatch reporting) or mailed on a DVD. All video submissions should include four copies on DVD format, mailed in a case, along with the category for the submission and the applicant´s name and contact number. All parts of the submission including overview must be sent electronically or by mail together, rather than in multiple parts. Electronic submissions are preferred but the Foundation understands that not all submissions can be sent in electronic format.

The deadline for this year´s awards submissions is January 7, 2017. Be sure to fill out the Awards Program Submission Form and include it with all submissions.
