Opportunity | BBC, ITV, HBO & more on the hunt for writers with the Screenwriting Goldmine Awards


Reposted in part from Writers Online

New and emerging TV screenwriters can get their work in front of industry professionals from the UK's leading broadcasters and production companies.

The Screenwriting Goldmine Awards is for original screenplays, in any genre, for a film, TV drama or pilot. Judges come from Sky, the BBC, Channel 4, HBO Europe, ITV and leading independents such as Tiger Aspect and World Productions.

Five finalists will all win meetings with three of the judges – where possible, the judges of their choice. Subsequently, a Grand Prize Winner will be announced. Screenwriting Goldmine founder, writer and script editor Phil Gladwin created the awards to help writers kick-start their careers through received expert advice and making priceless connections. 

To enter, writers must not have earned more than £12,000 from film or TV writing in the previous five years and be subscribers to Open Door, which costs £7.50 per month. The first entry is free, and subsequent entries cost £42.

The closing date to enter the Screenwriting Goldmine Awards is 31 January, so hurry!
