One Act Festival SCDA One-Act Festival is a national competitive festival which Edinburgh has participated in since its inception. There is an Open festival, open to youth and adult groups, and a Youth Festival, confined to teams of under-18s. This event has three stages. Members participate within their own District with the winning team or teams progressing to their Divisional Festival. The winning two teams from each of the four Divisional Finals go through to the Scottish Final. The winner of the Scottish Final winner proceeds to the British Final. At all levels the performances are reviewed by an independent adjudicator who gives a public assessment and awards the trophies. Festivals at all levels are held at a specific venue and spread over a number of nights. Although competition forms part of the motivation for our Festivals, non-competitive entries are also welcome. The Festivals are an opportunity for clubs to meet together, socialise and learn both from the adjudicators and from each other. Scott Salver Competition If a club is premiering an original play in the festival, the author is eligible to enter the Scott Salver competition with the play, not the performance, being judged by a panel of readers.
