The Annual Writers’ Guild of Ireland Zebbie Awards returned to the Sugar Club on Monday, 24th October 2022.

Named in honour of O.Z (Zebby) Whitehead, the awards are voted for by members of the Guild. The 2022 Zebbie Awards recognise the best scripts for radio, stage, and screen that were written and produced in 2021.

This year’s Awards were hosted by actor and writer Tara Flynn. In another incredibly competitive year for scriptwriting talent.

Speaking at the awards, WGI Chair Jennifer Davidson said: “We’re delighted to be able to celebrate the work that our incredible members do every year, through our annual Zebbie Awards.”

“While writers might be inclined to stay firmly behind the scenes, the truth is that we are the key starting point for every great play, film, radio drama, and tv series. It’s our vision that captivates audiences, and that inspires the collaboration and creativity of all our colleagues across the industry,” added Davidson. “The nominees for this year’s awards reflect the real talent that we know exists within our Guild. It was also a huge privilege this year to recognise the ground-breaking work done by the outgoing board of the National Campaign For The Arts on behalf of all artists.”
