2021 WriterSlam UKTV Terms and Conditions

  • By applying for the scheme, entrants warrant that they have legal capacity to enter the scheme and agree to be bound by these terms and conditions.
  • Entrants must be resident in the UK (including Northern Ireland) and have the right to work in the UK.
  • Entrants must be aged 18 or over.
  • You may submit more than one idea.
  • We accept entries from individual writers and writing teams of up to two people. Each member of a writing team must agree to these T & Cs.
  • All entries must be the original work of the entrant(s) and must not infringe the rights of any other party, or be the subject of any existing options. UKTV and TriForce Creative Network accept no liability if entrants ignore these rules and entrants agree to fully indemnify UKTV and TriForce Creative Network against any claims by any third party arising from any breach of these rules.
  • The copyright of all entries sent to UKTV and TriForce Creative Network rests with the writer.
  • We anticipate we will receive a great many submissions, and therefore similarities of subject matter may occur. We cannot undertake to compensate you if material similar to yours, received coincidentally from another source, is subsequently commissioned or produced.
  • The names of all selected entrants and any entrant whose entry is broadcast or used online will be made public. Entrants must agree to take part in any post-scheme publicity if required.
  • Finalist writers will receive a paid development opportunity to develop their idea into a 30’ script and treatment. Winning writers will have their scripts produced by TriForce Productions or a production company chosen by UKTV with completed projects anticipated to broadcast on Dave in late 2021 or 2022. All fees and contracts will be in line with standard UKTV writer’s agreements.
  • Any tax liabilities arising from the payment of script and treatment fees are the responsibility of the individual writer.
  • UKTV and TriForce Creative Network cannot be held responsible if coronavirus restrictions or other circumstances delay proposed filming or broadcast dates.
  • The selection of finalists and winners shall be at the absolute discretion of TriForce Creative Network and UKTV.
