What is it?
BBC New Creatives is an exciting talent development scheme offering commissioning opportunities for emerging creatives to make new artistic works in film, audio or interactive media, designed for BBC channels and platforms. If you’re based in the English Midlands, the New Creatives programme will be led by Rural Media.
Who are they looking for?
They’re looking for emerging talent between the ages of 16-30 with strong creative ideas and drive, to develop their original concept into a professional short film, audio or interactive media work. They will provide training to give you the skills you need to bring your idea to life and get it seen by audiences.
New Creatives content has the potential to be selected for an exciting new programming strand: BBC Introducing Arts, which will showcase and introduce new artistic talent from the UK across BBC platforms – BBC iPlayer, BBC Sounds, BBC television and radio. They’ll look to identify the best platform for each idea. This is an unprecedented opportunity for creatives to experiment and connect with BBC audiences and beyond.
Rural Media are currently specifically looking to commission audio works for BBC platforms. If you’re a writer, poet or spoken word artist based in the Midlands + aged 16-30 then find out how to apply on the Rural Media website
