2008 RED PLANET WRITING COMPETITION
Following on from last year's success, we are now calling for submissions for our second annual writing competition.
The winner of this year's competition will receive:
* A £5000 prize
* Representation by a leading literary agency
* A script commission from Red Planet Pictures.
Runners up will have the opportunity to have their writing mentored by the Red Planet team.
Budding writers should send in the first ten pages of a 60 minute pilot script with television series potential. The entry should also include a one-page outline about the series.
The first ten pages of a script are the most important. It's in those first ten pages that you have to grab your audience. The series outline should give us a flavour of your own unique voice as well as an idea of your vision for the series.
There are no guidelines or restrictions in terms of genre or subject.
The deadline for entries is September 30th 2008.
