KUDOS NORTH WRITERS' AWARD LAUNCHED
To mark the launch of Kudos North we want to cement our commitment to the area by investing in two writers based in or who have a robust relationship with the North of England. We are looking for writers with the strongest potential to develop original television content. For this opportunity we are asking writers with at least one produced credit to apply – that could be a theatre play, a radio drama, a commissioned online drama episode, a commissioned film or a credit(s) on a continuing drama. In other words if you are yet to have an original TV Drama produced we want to hear from you.
The two successful writers will each be awarded £2000 to develop an idea to be pitched initially to the BBC and potentially other broadcasters. We will also team them up with top writing mentors from the area including Danny Brocklehurst and Stephen Butchard. Over a six month period the writers will meet with their mentors whilst they develop their original ideas with the Development Producer at Kudos North – Laura Conway.
