Objective

Transition Stage Company want to give as much opportunity as possible to writers who submit to Enter. Stage. Write in the competition and beyond the Competition. We believe in providing creatives with a 'hand up' and putting you in front and in touch with the right people to push your career in the right direction.

Every writer wants to see their story come to life – with Enter Stage Write you get just that chance!

Along with a £1000 prize for the overall winner, a select number of scripts will be produced and performed at the prestigious Royal Birmingham Conservatoire on December 1st. A panel of industry pros that work for major British broadcasting companies (such as BBC and Channel 4) who are actively looking for new scripts to produce. Plus, various other patrons of the arts from around the West Midlands will also be in attendance to see the performance of your script.

Such an exciting incentive for any writer – you will actually get to see the potential of your script come to fruition!

But that’s not all! You have the option to opt-in or opt-out of your script being placed in the Transition Stage Company script database. This is a worldwide database which LOADS of producers have access to – this gives your script the chance – regardless of how it does in the contest – to be picked up by a producer that wants to bring your project to life.

All you have to do is write an original and brilliant 7-10 minute script (have a read through with family and friends), and submit it for just £10.

Anyone can enter into the competition as long as they are a British citizen or currently reside in the UK and they have studied or are studying in the UK.

For more even more details on the contest and Transition Stage Company head here or email us at info@transitionstagecompany.com. Enter as soon as possible before the contest closes at midnight November 19th.

Script Guidelines: The script must 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). Although dialogues (two-handers) are preferable, the script must not require any more than three actors to perform. The script can be of any genre; from drama to comedy, anything goes. Above all, we want diverse and authentic stories which really speak for the place and region that you represent..

Furthermore, there is a submission for a 20-minute consultation with your 7-10-minute script with an industry professional Master script advisor for £30 pound these are subject to availability, these sessions will take place in September and October, and this will also allow you to re-submit for free with your amendments and be on the Transition Stage Company database for a year.

For the West Midlands, we have Tim Stimpson head chairman of writer guild and also the writer of award-winning BBC productions Archers and EastEnders.

Although there is limited availability on the Master script session if there is an influx in the deeper Northern regions of the United Kingdom we will assist as regional inclusivity is important.

The admin fees are in place too. The admin fees are in place to employ expert script practitioners Transition Stage Company promise not to share the applicant’s information with any third parties; this is in keeping with the legislative clauses of the Data Protection Act 1998.
