THE COMEDY WRITING AWARD
in assoCiation with the comedy unit and the huffington post
What is the comedy writing award?
We know that not every writer is a performer, so this an opportunity for those happier behind the scenes to truly shine. That's why we're happy to be continuing the Comedy Writing Award in 2014, in association with award winning comedy production company The Comedy Unit, and leading news platform The Huffington Post.
Andrea Mann, Comedy Editor of The Huffington Post UK, had this to say about working with the Comedy Writing Award this year: "As someone who likes to champion women in comedy- as well as being a woman myself- I'm delighted, as Comedy Editor of The Huffington Post UK, to be involved in the Funny Women Awards. There are so many brilliant, funny women trying who deserve to have the spotlight shone on them- especially those who work behind the scenes as writers- and I believe these awards help to do just that."
£500 script option fee for a 12 month development period, including three weeks intensive mentoring to complete the 30 minute script with dedicated access to a professional script editor.
WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:
An 8-15 page extract of a 30 minute comedy script for television. The script can take the form of a sitcom, sketch show, comedy drama- anything really, so long as it has a comic twist.
The Comedy Writing Award is all about encouraging new female writing talent. As such, entrants cannot be professional script writers (i.e. earn your main income from writing television scripts)
Exceptions to this rule: Writing one-off jokes/sketches for TV/radio, and previous script writing awards
If in doubt, just drop us an email on email@example.com
