Rather than accepting scripts year-round, the BBC have distinct submission windows for scripts which are announced on the BBC Writers Opportunities page during the year. Each Open Call has a deadline, following which the scripts received are assessed intensively by script readers and the BBC Writers team, and a shortlist drawn up. They then offer various opportunities for the shortlisted group of writers including their Scripted and Voices development groups.
The next Open Call submission window will be open between 12 noon on Tuesday 7th November 2023 and 12 noon on Tuesday 5th December 2023.
Find full details of how to enter your script on the BBC Writers’ Website.
Deadline: 5 December 2023 at 12 noon
