Three big opportunities up on the opps page today, so I thought it's worth calling them out in the blog.
Newsjack is the BBC's open-call topical comedy show, and that means anyone can submit material. The deadline is Monday noon for sketches (starting this Monday, 14th June), and Tuesday 5pm for one-liners (starting on Tuesday 15th June).
The Red Planet Prize, this year in collaboration with Kudos Productions, is a competition with a top prize of Â£5,000, a guaranteed script commission from Red Planet Productions, and representation. They're looking for a 60-minute script which can either be a single or the pilot for a new series, and the deadline is 31st July.
Coming Up is a talent scheme from Channel 4 and Touchpaper TV. You'll need a 60-page script as a sample of your writing and a two-page pitch. The prize is a guaranteed network broadcast, and the deadline has been extended until 18th June.
