Zodiak Kids Writers Award 2019

The Zodiak Kids Writers Award 2019 is open until 23 September 2019.

In partnership with BBC Writersroom and NI Screen, Zodiak Kids Studios is looking for writers with a strong connection to Northern Ireland to develop an original children’s comedy television series, with a particular focus on CBBC.

Up to six new writers to this genre will have an opportunity to be paid to develop an original series idea; two writers will subsequently be selected to win a pilot script commission.

Submit a writing sample at least 30 pages and a 2-page pitch for an original contemporary comedy / comedy-drama idea suitable for CBBC featuring at least 4 characters between the ages of 12 and 16.
