Three Things: Scheme & Competitions

A few opportunities for you to consider. Have a good weekend!

Hot on the heels of the Northern Voices scheme, The BBC Writersroom and South West Screen have launched South West Voices. They’re looking for new voices and new ideas for television from writers based in the South West of England; twenty writers will be picked for a workshop in May, followed by a lucky 8 who will develop their ideas for potential commission. To enter, you need to complete an online application form and send your email receipt with your sample script and a one page pitch for a returning drama series or drama (either stand-alone or serial).

I think this is an amazing opportunity and know the Northern Voices Participants have got LOADS from the scheme – so you can bet I was hot-footing it down the PO yesterday! But hurry — DEADLINE IS APRIL 21ST (next weds!!). All the details here.

Raoul from Circalit has been in touch, wanting to let Bang2writers know about the new monthly screenwriting contest there — here are all the details:

BBC and Hollywood Producer Julie Richardson to Judge Monthly Screenwriting Competition on Circalit.

Screenwriters across the globe are posting their scripts up at Circalit where BBC and Hollywood producers are now reviewing winning scripts with a view to production. The competition takes place monthly and is divided into television scripts, feature length screenplays and shorts. The winning scripts are decided every month by public vote and are then sent to BBC and Hollywood producers to be reviewed and potentially produced. The BBC will be reviewing the winning television script each month, whilst Julie Richardson, managing member of Imaginarium Entertainment Group and best known as the producer of box office hit “Collateral” will be reviewing the winning short (any screenplay under 60 pages). Meanwhile, feature length screenplays are being judged by Hollywood scriptwriter, Tom Lazarus, and Europe’s premier script development organisation, The Script Factory, in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox, Columbia and a host of other major production studios.”

Sounds impressive!
