Another Ugandan, Carlos Lwanga, who happens to be Chimpreports’ columnist was also hailed for his play Possession. It’s on the list of commended plays by the judges worldwide.

The BBC International Radio Playwright Competition is a competition for anyone resident outside Britain, to write a 53-minute radio drama for up to six characters.

There are two categories: one for writers with English as their first language and one for writers with English as their second language.

The two winners will come to London and see their play made into a full radio production, which will then be broadcast on the BBC World Service. They will also each receive a £2,000 prize and there are certificates for runners-up.

Angella Emurkon is in the running for the £2,000 prize. The overall winner will be announced by the BBC later this year.
