In 2010, the Company established an additional prize, the Patrick White Playwrights' Fellowship, to recognise and support more established Australian playwrights. Both awards are designed to benefit both emerging writers and mid-career writers.
The year-long Fellowship, supported by a cash prize, is awarded for an established Australian playwright whose work has been produced professionally in Australia within the last four years. It recognises and rewards their body of work. Winning playwrights receive a commission to write a new play.
