“I’m delighted to announce that submissions for our 17th Annual Zebbie Awards will open this week,” said WGI Chair, Jennifer Davidson. “Celebrating the very best of Irish writing talent across screen, stage and radio, the Zebbie Awards allow writers to honour our peers, and to recognise the brilliant work that Irish writers create. They are the only Irish Awards for writers, voted on by writers.  It also gives us a really important opportunity to take stock of the work that Irish writers are doing year on year, and to shine a light on the issues facing writers in Ireland in any given year.”
