The WGC is currently accepting nominations for the WGC Showrunner Award and the Sondra Kelly Award, which will be presented on April 24, 2023, at the WGC Screenwriting Awards ceremony in Toronto.

The $5,000 Sondra Kelly Award is open to mid-career female-identifying screenwriters looking to research/develop a self-initiated project. Sondra Kelly was a longtime member of the WGC and held the first WGC-designated seat on the Actra Fraternal Benefit Society (AFBS) board.
