Arts in the Armed Forces presents The Bridge Award, established with the sole purpose of recognizing an emerging playwright of exceptional talent within the United States military. The award consists of a $10,000 prize and an AITAF-produced reading of the winning work. The 2020 final selecting judge will be David Henry Hwang.
In addition to bringing world-class theater to the military, AITAF is committed to supporting and sharing the talents of those who serve. This Award will offer a deserving current military service member or veteran artist important connections with the theater community and access to developmental resources, helping to facilitate a deeper understanding and more active dialogue between military and civilian communities.
