The winner of this year’s Nick Darke Award is Richard Molloy for his play, Every Day I Make Greatness Happen. 

Conceived by Jane Darke in 2006, the Nick Darke Award endeavours to continue Nick's legacy by promoting the best new writing for stage, screen and radio.

Funded and run by Falmouth University, a specialist arts university based in Nick's home county Cornwall, the annual Award is designed to provide the time to write that financial support facilitates. Past winners of the £6,000 prize have collected BAFTA and Royal Television Society awards, while others have gone on to write for the RSC, the National Theatre and Kneehigh.

In this, the tenth anniversary since Nick's death, Jane Darke and Falmouth are relaunching the Award with the aim of extending its reach, building partnerships and ensuring accessibility to those who would most benefit from its support.
