A self-tape contest where actors are given prompts and are invited to play with their creativity, their artistry and practice with their at-home set-up.

What will you create?

The #SELFTAPECREATE contests at ActorPlaybook are FREE and ALL actors who wish to participate are invited to submit their tapes.

Check out the contest guidelines below:

Original work

Yes, write an original monologue or scene by yourself or collaborate. You got this.

90 Seconds or Less

Is it a big deal if you go over? Just read the world news and NO, absolutely NOT a big deal. The time limit simply makes it easier to share your work on IG and keep in mind that it is a standard length for most audition monologues.


Does it feel scary to share your work? Most of us are shakin' in our boots, too. It gets easier the more you do it and we are here to support you if you need it! "Where to share" details below.
