  • The Money - Screen Australia's Online Production team, Lee Naimo and Alyce Adams, will outline the current market and funding opportunities for short-form drama series

  • Masterclass: Julie Kalceff will run an exclusive full-day masterclass on writing short-form drama for up to 6 selected teams.

Applications are now being accepted until Monday, 18 November.

Application process

If you wish to be considered for the pitch meetings and masterclass, you must apply as a team with a project, with a two-page pitch document. For those only wishing to attend Episode 1, you can apply as an individual without a project, and all eligible applicants will be accepted (subject to capacity).

Teams will be assessed against the following criteria:

  • The skills and experience of the creative team
  • The strength and quality of the material provided, and
  • The likelihood of the project advancing into production engaging an audience online

The number of teams selected for pitching meetings in Episode 2 will be dependent on the number of pitching sessions available (approximately 10-15).

Up to 6 teams will be selected for Episode 3.
