Since 1983 the $10,000 Bruce Mason Playwriting Award has recognised the work of an outstanding emerging New Zealand playwright. The winner is decided by the votes of a panel of leading New Zealand artistic directors and script advisors. The award is named after the man considered to be New Zealand’s first significant playwright, who died in 1982. It is funded by Playmarket, the FAME (Fund for Acting and Musical Endeavours) Trust and Downstage Theatre Society. This list names the winners of the award from its inception to 2017.
