19 Aug 2021 : News Desk
WGI Zebbie Awards
Now in their 14th year, the Writers’ Guild of Ireland ZeBBie Awards celebrate the best in writing talent across stage and screen.

Named in honour of O.Z (Zebby) Whitehead, and presented each year by Senator David Norris, the awards are voted for by members of the Guild. The 2021 awards recognise the best scripts that were produced in 2020.

“This year’s shortlist represents the brilliance of Irish writers across stage, screen and radio,” said WGI Chair Jennifer Davidson. “It’s a shortlist packed with talent and a mixture of new voices and seasoned hands. 

“It’s particularly impressive to reflect that all these scripts found audiences in 2020, given the massive impact the pandemic has had on our industry,” added Davidson. “We are thrilled to once again be able to celebrate Irish writers through the Zebbie Awards.”  

Voting is now open exclusively for WGI members and will remain open until September 7th.

The WGI Zebbie Awards are supported by the Irish Copyright Licensing Agency and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland.
