The Channel 4 Writing for Television Awards offer a placement with an independent production company, mentoring and writing development support, and a bursary to talented writers who have not yet had a script produced for television. Writers are now invited to submit for the awards until 17 March 2022.
Writers can apply to work with Lime Pictures on the serial drama, Hollyoaks, and/or to develop original screenplays with Bonafide and Rollem Productions. The placement can take place in-person or virtually, or a combination of both, and they will discuss individual access requirements with the winning writers. The awards are free to enter and are open to writers based in the North of England. They especially welcome submissions from people of colour and those from LGBTQ+, disabled and lower socio-economic backgrounds, as well as areas of the North where access to similar opportunities is limited.
