Congratulations Shelly Birse!
On May 22nd 2017, Shelly Birse writer of The Code (Series 2), was awarded the Betty Roland Prize for Script Writing at the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards. This award was presented to Shelly for her outstanding writing of The Code (Series 2) Episode 4 .
The NSW Premier’s Literary Awards have a proud history, both in celebrating achievement by Australian writers and in helping to establish values and standards in Australian literature. Shelly received some fantastic comments from the judges for her writing on The Code, Series 2 highlighted below.
“Shelley Birse boldly immerses us in a world resonating with the anxieties of our times – terrorism, cyber-crime, national security – played against upholding the value of civil liberty, freedom of speech and human life beyond our shores…
Birse’s muscular writing skilfully balances subject matter and style. The personal is not lost to the political: a complex, story-laden plot still allows for the characters (and there are many to service) to breathe and interact – in surprising and original ways. Humour is interwoven amongst the high stakes tension and the dialogue is snappy and precise. An outstanding television screenplay, The Code is a sublime, riveting read.”
