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.
You always need a Film Business Plan to get funding from investors.
