Funny Women, the UK's leading female comedy community, is on the look out for scripts for its Comedy Writing Award. The award is specifically for women writing comedy for television and the prize includes intensive mentoring and script optioning with award-winning production company, The Comedy Unit.
The judging panel will be focusing on writing flair and the ability to put together a laugh-out-loud joke. The Comedy Writing Award is open to both individual and joint entries. However entries will not be accepted from anyone who has been employed as a professional TV script editor. If in doubt about your eligibility please email the organisers.
You will need to submit a 1-2 page treatment and 3 sample scenes of a comedy script for television. Scripts will be judged for concept, story and structure, character and dialogue, as well as overall funniness and saleability. Ten scripts will be longlisted and submitted to a panel of industry judges.
Deadline: Monday 10 August 2015.
