The David Nobbs Memorial Trust - 4th Annual Comedy Writing Competition
Deadline: Fri 12 Mar 2021
The David Nobbs Memorial Trust, established after the death of the beloved Reggie Perrin author, has launched its fourth annual sketch comedy writing competition, encouraging new talent with financial aid in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The competition offers cash prizes to up-and-coming comedy writers, helping them ‘buy time’ for writing.

The contest is aimed at those early in their writing career, but it is not totally ‘open door’. Entrants must be able to provide a broadcast credit for their written material and accompany their entry with a 500-word Statement of Intent, describing their writing career goals.

With the comedy and arts sectors widely affected by lockdown restrictions, this year’s competition will increase the cash prize for the overall winner to £750. Any runner-up winners will receive £250. Also, for the first time, the winners will get a precious one-on-one consultation with an established comedy producer on the Trust board.

Deadline: 23:59 on 12th March 2021
