Hollyoaks competition

Thanks to Danny Stack's ever informative blog for the tip-off about a competition run by Channel 4 open to writers of all levels of experience.
As part of Channel 4's new talent month, we're offering you the chance to write an episode of HOLLYOAKS.

But this isn't a fan-fic initiative, this time it's for real.

For the very first time, this is your chance to put words into the mouths of the HOLLYOAKS cast and see your work come to life on screen.

This competition is designed to seek out the best new writers in the UK. To do that, we're asking you to script four scenes, based on an old storyline. From this, we'll pick out our favourite. The winner will then be given exclusive access to HOLLYOAKS' storylines, be commissioned to write an entire episode and work with the production team to see this magically transformed on TV.

Whether you're a fan, an established writer or just looking to take your first tentative steps into the TV industry, this is a unique opportunity to make a name for yourself.
The closing date for entries is 11 April 2008.

  1. Actually, I think I saw it on the Irish Writers' Guild blog (run by the mighty Maura McHugh), and then someone from the comp's PR sent me the press release so I just plonked it on me own blog then...
