1st prize: ‘Voices from an eco-future’ by Adrian Ellis. 8 x15 minute radio drama
A strong winner. This is a series of 8 x 15-minute stories, all of which have interesting ideas, and anti-consumption messages wrapped up in humour, great characterization and snappy dialogue. Each one made us laugh out loud in places.
2nd prize: ‘I am your dress’ by Yvonne Sampson. 45-minute drama
This draws on the idea of a dress going through many hands, and smuggles in green solutions such as washing cold, drip-drying and clothes libraries.
3rd prize: ‘The Roof Garden’ by Jill Hucklesby. 45-minute radio comedy
This was very sweet, with lots of drama and richly drawn characters. It promotes very subtly love of nature, solar panels, electric cars.
