Stellify Media / Sony Pictures Television All-Ireland Screenwriting Prize

Sony Pictures Television and Stellify Media, in partnership with Northern Ireland Screen, are launching a brand-new All-Ireland screenwriting prize.

They are looking for ideas for high-concept, contemporary, returnable crime drama, that can be filmed on the island of Ireland. The winning submissions will receive funded development to bring a project to pitching stage.

Entrants will be asked to submit a short pitch to brief and an example of their writing.

A maximum of 6 projects will be selected for development funding to write a treatment, with the best ideas being further developed to pilot script stage, and the option for Stellify Media to take a series into production.

Entrants must have been born in or be a current resident of Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland, and must be 18 years of age on or before the competition closes on the 15th January 2021.
