Kudos North Writers' Award
Deadline: Mon 20 Nov 2017
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.

Kudos is a High End production company that values distinctive content. Kudos North is specifically looking for dynamic stories and characters that radiate a northern authenticity.

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.

This opportunity is open to writers residing and working in the North of England on a full time basis or those writers who can demonstrate a clear understanding of the culture of the North and be confident that they can deliver authentic dialogue and relevant Northern stories in a fresh and original way. The North of England is defined by the Boundary Commission for England which includes the North East, North West, Yorkshire and Humber.

Further information and details of how to apply is available here

Closing date for entries is 10.00am on Monday 20 November 2017
