BBC Comedy Writing Competition

Our friends at the publicly-funded BBC are looking for material on the cheap as usual. They've got a comedy sketch-writing contest on the go at the moment, called "Show me the Funny". You can use characters or situations from the pilot to create new sketches or write a completely new idea which you believe fits the format of the show. Each sketch must be under three minutes in duration or 700 words maximum. Fifty of the most-promising writers will be invited to a workshop, then the best ten selected. Writing format templates, plus all the fine print available HERE
