2010 Twitter Play Contest

by Patrick Gauthier

June 20, 2010

The 2010 Twitter Play Contest has begun!

Of course, you have to be on Twitter to participate (you are on Twitter, aren’t you?); and while you’re there why not follow us for up to the minute updates and news about the 2010 Ottawa Fringe Festival.

@ottawafringe Twitter followers also have the chance to win great prizes… and enter the Twitter Play Contest!  The rules are simple: write a Fringe play, in one tweet (140-characters or less), and label it with the hashtag #ottfringe (a hastag enables us to find tweets on a specific subject by simply searching for their common hashtag).  That’s it. You can enter as many times as you like, as long as each play is only one tweet long.

Starting tonight (June 20) Catriona Leger, Brad MacNeil, and myself (and maybe some special guests) will perform the best plays during Chats with Cat (every night at 10:00 pm in the Fringe Courtyard).  The audience will choose the daily winner, and the Grand Prize winner will be revealed on Saturday June 26.

Finalists and winners will be posted here daily, so come back to read them.  And if you’re looking for inspiration, why not read some of last year’s entries.

Happy writing!
