Channel 4 s drama reflects its public

Each writer will shadow the process of script development, from story conference through to broadcast script, and at the end of the development period may have the opportunity to undertake a paid commission for an episode of a Lime Pictures serial. Re-balancing who is writing TV drama helps to better reflect the world that we all represent and opens the doors to exciting new writing that will bring new ideas and energy into the landscape. These exclusive awards are a fantastic opportunity for new writers to work with established production companies and launch a successful career in television.

We know there is a wealth of writing talent in the north of England and I hope writers will take up this fantastic opportunity to launch their careers.

With our full support, this is a fantastic opportunity for writers to immerse themselves in the high-pressure, fast-paced environment of writing for television and experience first-hand the special challenges involved. Entrants should be new to television writing, but may be published in another form.
