Opportunities – Pick of the Week: Red Planet Prize 2018

Each week we look through our pile of writing opportunities to pick out one we think is particularly worth your time. It could be an innovative brief, great prize money, a high-profile company, or just plain fun.

This week’s pick: Red Planet Prize 2018

Description:  The Red Planet Prize is run in collaboration between Red Planet Pictures (Dickensian, The Ark, Death in Paradise) and ITV Drama. It offers emerging talent the opportunity to create a new, original TV drama with a script commission and development opportunities from ITV.

What’s so great about it? If you’re looking to break into television, this is a priceless opportunity – and unusual in that it offers a chance to develop your own idea rather than write for an existing series. Even if you don’t win the prize, there’s still the opportunity to get quite a lot out of it. 10 finalists get to attend a pitching masterclass and write an excerpt of their idea, so these are rich opportunities to build your skills and network. The submission window is 1-9 February, so if you’d like to submit it’s a good plan to get writing!
