The BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Competition is a platform for aspiring screenwriters to have their work showcased and a fantastic opportunity to take their writing career to the next level.
Each year the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing Competition calls submissions for film, television drama, children's media and television comedy scripts.
Following a blind judging process, selected script extracts are performed by a professional cast to an audience of producers, development executives, directors, actors and literary agents, aiming to give a platform to emerging writing talent from across the country.
The benefits for a writer include: hearing their work read by professional actors, a development focused discussion generated by the readings, feedback and advice from experienced industry members and an invaluable method to test out new concepts and material on an audience.
