This is a call for UK Based writers with a script. Your script could be selected for the Bafta showcase! We run four different competitions throughout the year: Film, Comedy, Writing for Children and TV Drama. All competitions are judged by readers, a script selection panel and an industry jury, selected for their proven expertise in that medium.
To apply for TV Drama please submit a completed online application form along with your supporting material! All Writers: Are sent a status update by email. This is usually sent out two to three weeks prior to the event date. Showcased writers are always contacted.
Three winners of the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Initiative get: A fantastic Industry showcase at BAFTA's London HQ with professional actors and directors, industry introductions, access to bespoke masterclasses and a tailored career planning and profile building session to provide support in navigating the industry. Five tickets to the live showcase with a travel allowance for those outside of the M25.
Short Listed Writers: Writers whose work makes it to the final stage with the jury get two tickets to the live showcase.
