Script Guidelines The script has to be precisely 7-10 minutes in length (please read-through with friends or other readers, so that all parts are covered and you can determine accurately whether this is the case).
The script can be of any genre; from drama to thriller, anything goes; though comedy is always a fun route to go down. Above all, we want diverse and authentic stories which really speak for the regions which you are representing.  It is preferable that the entered scripts are duologues, a two-hander. Three characters would be perfectly suitable also, although there can only be a maximum of three characters per script.  Anyone can enter into the competition as long as they currently reside in the UK and they have studied or are studying in the UK. 
If you are under the age of 16, please state your age and have your parents’/guardians’ names and contact information placed on the script. Please do not put your name on the page at all, if under 16. If you are under 16, the admin fee to enter a script is £2.25. 
If you are 16 and over, the admin fee to enter a script is £3.25. These are, however ‘Early Bird’ entry rates and are likely to be subject to increase as we move closer to the date of the competition itself.
The closing date of the competition is August 31st 2017. The admin fees are in place to employ expert script practitioners. These experts will initially review each script entry. They will then arrange the performing of the material on the night and will eventually make the negotiations toward the material being published.
