Eligibility Criteria for All Categories

All work entered can be made for theatrical release, television, web or for viewing on any other media platform. As the work is new, it does not need to have been screened or broadcast prior to entry in order to qualify. Work entered should have been produced in Scotland and/or predominantly cast and crewed by individuals who are resident in Scotland.

In addition, individuals entering the awards must be either students or emerging professionals working in the relevant field for the first time. Please note that there is no age limit to enter into competition but non-student entrants must be genuinely first-time practitioners. Due to the collaborative nature of creating work BAFTA in Scotland appreciate students/first-timers may work alongside more experienced crew, however we ask that submissions be made in the spirit of the New Talent Awards, and to uphold the integrity of these awards BAFTA in Scotland reserve the right to make further checks to ensure eligibility. Individuals entering the awards should be Scottish, resident in Scotland or a student registered with a Scottish institution.

All entered work must have been completed between 1 January and 31 December 2012.
