Northern Film & Media bursary

Thanks to BBC Writersroom for the link to Northern Film & Media's bursary scheme. The closing date for applications is 7 June.
Northern Film & Media is to support two regional writers to develop a full length feature screenplay through a £10,000 bursary scheme.

Running for the second year, Northern Film & Media launched its Script Bursaries 2007 in late April.

Calling for 8-10 page feature treatments that have the potential to become well developed and commercial feature screenplays, Northern Film & Media expect all writers applying to be able to deliver a high quality completed script within the timescale indicated.

Northern Film & Media will pay the two successful writers £5,000 each for delivery of the completed screenplays.

The scheme also aims to develop writers in their production of scripts of the highest quality. To ensure this, Northern Film & Media will work with the writers and provide expert editing assistance from industry professionals on the projects.

The scheme is open to writers based in the North East region (Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, County Durham and Tees Valley). Applicants must be over 18 and not in full-time or undergraduate education.
