EVALD SCHORM AWARDS

DILIA annually organizes the Evald Schorm Awards designed for students of theatre schools.


The prize is awarded in the category of the best original play, radio drama, dramatic adaptation and translation of a play. We are trying to motivate and support young translators and authors in their new and original work. Thanks to the prize this work can be shown also outside the academic ground. Evald Schorm Awards have become a prestigious award thanks to which the doors to theatre and radio institutions open more easily for the awardees. 

Main goals:

The main goal is to support and motivate aspiring authors and translators to persist in their activity. Thanks to EvaldSchorm Awards their works can be introduced to a wider theatre context, not just the academic one. Evald Schorm Awards (together with Alfred Radok Awards) have become a prestigious prize recognized not only in theCzechRepublic, but also abroad.

Plays awarded by Evald Schorm Award have already been achieved 40 productions (e.g. at the Moravian-Silesian National Theatre in Ostrava, Svandovo divadlo, Studio Ypsilon, A Studio Rubin, Mestske divadlo Zlin, Antoni Dvorak Theatre in Pribram) and nine of them have been broadcasted on the radio.
