The Welcome Trust Broadcast Development Awards Pitch is to return to Sheffield Doc/Fest for a fifth year.
Applicants are invited to apply for the chance to pitch a programme idea - in any genre - to a judging panel. The ideas need to engage the audience with contemporary or historical biomedical science, in an innovative and accessible way.
Awards of up to £10,000 are available and may be given to more than one project. The prize will enable the pitched ideas to be developed into high impact, well-researched proposals to help secure a UK broadcast platform and production funding. The pitch and the announcement of the awards will take place on Friday 15th June as part of Science at Sheffield.
Closing date for applications is Friday 27th April. For more information and to download an application form, please go to www.sheffdocfest.com/view/wellcometrustpitch
