Mammoth Screen NI Writers Award 2021

The Mammoth Screen NI Writers Award 2021 is open until February 25, 2021 (noon).

Mammoth Screen has partnered with BBC Writersroom and BBC Drama Commissioning to search for writers to develop bold, original drama and comedy-drama television series for BBC network broadcast. Up to four writers will be given the opportunity to be paid to develop an original series idea with Mammoth Screen, and one writer will subsequently be selected for a pilot script commission.

Open to emerging and established writers who can represent the culture of Northern Ireland with authenticity (for example you may be from, or have lived or worked in Northern Ireland). Writers must have at least one professionally produced script, minimum of 15’ in length, in television, radio, theatre or film. Open to writers resident in Ireland or the UK and aged 18 at the time of application.
