Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award 2013

It's that time of year again. All the details and application form can be found here.
So as not to waste your time, remember you have to be a non US citizen and under 30.
Deadline is 1st July.
It seems like a million years since I won this, but I still remember it fondly as both an amazing experience and an important step along the career path.
Good luck.

Hey Jez,
I entered this competition this year and I was wondering if you felt it helped your career

Hi Stephen

For sure. But it wasn't the short cut to success that I thought it would be at the time. Now I know there are no short cuts really. At the time I thought yep, this is it. Everyone is going to be beating down the door to read my work and represent me. And unsurprisingly that didn't happen.
But the people I met due to that experience, and be able to use that script as a calling card, has opened many doors that I wouldn't otherwise have been able to get through. And it's like dominoes. One piece leads to the next one. Good luck with your entry
