The Australian Writers' Guild (AWG) is a professional association that has been representing Australian screenwriters, playwrights, radio writers, comedy writers and digital media writers since 1962. The Guild aims to promote the Australian Cultural voice within the arts. It was created for writers by writers, with the council consisting of members within their respective performative industries. The AWG recognises through their mission statement that performance writing and performance writers ‘thrive as a dynamic and integral part of Australian storytelling, shaping, reflecting and enhancing the Australian cultural voice in all its diversity.’ This is exemplified through the Guild’s work as a political voice through lobbying the Australian government on issues such as funding and copyright protection in order to protect Australian content. In regards to leadership, the AWG is a democratically run association, run by the members of the guild. Each year, the members elect the National-Executive Council alongside Branch Committees that represent each Australian state. Membership is an essential aspect of the Guild as they dictate the leadership, action and fund distribution of the association.Shane Brennan is the current president of the National Executive Committee. He was elected in 2019. Brennan is an Australian writer and producer, working on the US television drama NCIS, which is currently on its fifteenth season. In 1967 the AWG introduced the AWGIE awards. This annual awards ceremony is judged by over 50 writers apart of the Guild, awarding excellence in screen, stage and radio writing. As of 2019, The Australian Writers Guild is supported financially by the Australian Film Commission, Screen Australia, , , Screenwest, Screen NSW, , and the South Australian Film Corporation.
