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: The Alfred Bradley Bursary Award
Description: The Alfred Bradley Bursary Award is an opportunity for writers based in the North of England who are new to writing for audio. It offers a £5,000 bursary to the winner as well as the chance of a Radio 4 Drama commission.
Why is it so great? The Award was established in 1992 to commemorate the life and work of Alfred Bradley, the distinguished BBC Radio Drama Producer and is run by Audio Drama North in conjunction with the BBC Writersroom. Previous winners include Lee Hall (Billy Elliot, War Horse), Peter Straughan (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Debt), Cat Jones (Doctors, Waterloo Road) and Furquan Akhtar (Wolfe, The Bay) who have all gone on to have huge success across radio, TV and film. So this is an opportunity with great possibilities and if you’re a writer in the North you’ve got until 11th April to apply, good luck!
