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.

A full online briefing will take place at 4 pm on Tuesday 15th December 2020. If you wish to attend please register your interest - here.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the briefing.

We can’t wait to see what projects are submitted.”
