The idea should be no more than 100 words long and should be a brief summary. We are focusing on scripted television- either comedy, drama or comedy/drama - but within those parameters anything goes. Be as concise as possible and always keep in mind what makes your idea ORIGINAL. There is a small £5 charge for each submission.
You can submit more than one idea, but to keep things fair, you'll need to pay the fee for each idea.
The deadline for entries is Monday 25 March at 6.00pm.
"Since winning Stellar Network's 'Pitch Up' competition I have been continuing to develop my format with various production companies and with Channel 4... the competition was a fantastic experience" - Sam Burr
We're as concerned as you are with protecting them- they will not be visible to the public, and if you like we can send you an NDA (non-disclosure agreement) by email return.
We will pick out the top 10 ideas, and then on the 15th April we'll gather the lucky 10 at BAFTA to pitch to an exclusive panel and get feedback.
The panel will judge the top 3 pitches, who will each win a fantastic goody bag. And for the winning pitch, BAFTA will facilitate one follow up development meeting with a TV producer or exec from their Television membership!
For any of the 10 pitches in the spotlight, there's always the chance that your incredible idea will be taken on by a member of our panel and might just end up on screen. Even if you don’t get selected this time, you can still attend and benefit from the feedback the other pitchers receive.
"Stellar Network events are always very well run, enjoyable, and challenging, in the best possible way!'. ‘Pitch Up’ proves there’s no monopoly on good ideas and it’s refreshing to see such talent and creativity harnessed to some truly original and varied pitches." - Benjamin McGrath - ITV Drama Commissioning
Working with creative minds to lift the lid on the TV industry, BAFTA TV Lab events work to offer transparent, practical and inspiring insights into how aspects of the industry really work.
