The Sondra Kelly Award
Call for Entries
The Sondra Kelly Award is awarded each year to a female screenwriter (must be WGC member in good standing) in mid-career with several produced writing credits and a promising project in the works. The Award provides $5000 to support research and/or development on a self-initiated project.
Sondra Kelly was a longtime member of the Writers Guild of Canada. In 2007, she received the WGC Writers Block Award for her record of exceptional service to the WGC and for her strengthening of the Canadian screenwriting community as a whole. In addition to serving on the WGC Council from January 1997 to December 2003, Sondra occupied the first WGC-designated seat on the Actra Fraternal Benefits Society (AFBS) board (1998 to 2003). Hers was the first writer’s voice on a board made up of actors, producers and broadcasters at a time when a writer’s voice was much needed.
This Award in her memory, generously supported by AFBS, honours her dedication and contribution. Please help us celebrate Sondra’s life and achievements through this award.
