BAFTA TV Lab: PITCH UP! with Stellar Network – Call For Submissions
Reposted from Bafta website.
BAFTA and Stellar Network are once again teaming up to give YOU the opportunity to get your great TV idea heard by the people who matter.
First of all we want to hear your ideas. Get your idea in by registering it online here
The idea should be no more than 100 words long and should be a brief summary. We are focusing on scripted comedy and drama – but within those parameters anything goes. Be as concise as possible and always keep in mind what makes your idea ORIGINAL.
There is a small £5 charge for each submission.
You can submit more than one idea, but to keep things fair, you'll need to pay the fee for each idea. The deadline for entries is 2nd April.
We're as concerned as you are with protecting them- they will not be visible to the public, and if you like we can send you an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) by email return. We will pick out the top 10 ideas, and then on the 23rd April we'll gather the lucky 10 at BAFTA to pitch to an exclusive panel and get feedback.
The fantastic panel are Juliette Howell, Head of Television (UK) Working Title Television, Huw Kennair Jones from Sky and Ben Cavey, Head of Entertainment Tiger Aspect. The panel will judge the top 3 pitches, who will each win a fantastic goody bag. And for the winning pitch, BAFTA will facilitate one follow up development meeting with a TV producer or exec from their Television membership.
For any of the 10 pitches in the spotlight, there's always the chance that your incredible idea will be taken on by a member of our panel and might just end up on screen. Even if you don’t get selected this time, you can still attend and benefit from the feedback the other pitchers receive.
Working with creative minds to lift the lid on the TV industry, BAFTA TV Lab events work to offer transparent, practical and inspiring insights into how aspects of the industry really work.
‘Stellar Network events are always very well run, enjoyable, and challenging, in the best possible way!'. ‘Pitch Up’ proves there’s no monopoly on good ideas and it’s refreshing to see such talent and creativity harnessed to some truly original and varied pitches’. Benjamin McGrath – ITV Drama Commissioning
The LIVE pitching event takes place on Monday April 23rd at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly from 18:45.
