SUSUtv, the University of Southampton’s student-run television station, has launched two competitions for budding scriptwriters and musicians.
The scriptwriting competition offers writers the chance to have their script turned into an original drama which will be live-streamed online, while musicians could have their chance to produce a music video for one of their songs.
Station Manager of SUSUtv, Chris Evans, said: “Getting involved in SUSUtv’s scriptwriting and music video competitions is an incredible opportunity to showcase your talents. Over the past few years the winning entries have been transformed into some of SUSUtv’s highest quality productions, and have received excellent exposure at a national level, as submissions for the National Students’ Television Association’ Awards (NaSTA Awards). For instance, in 2014 our script competition winner came home with the award for Best Writing, whilst we also received the highly commended award for our music video ‘Damage Control’.”
The music video competition is open to any performer or group over the age of 18. To enter, artists should email a good quality recording of the track they wish to enter to firstname.lastname@example.org before midnight on 5th October 2015.
Entry to the scriptwriting competition is restricted to current students or alumni of the university who graduated less than two years ago. To enter, writers need to email 10-15 pages of a 30 minute drama or comedy script (containing no more than 6 characters and two interior locations), as well as a brief summary of the story (max. 400 words) and one line about each lead character to email@example.com before midday on 2nd October 2015.
