Winner to be flown to LA and teamed with experts to help realise their project.


UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) has today launched a competition to give the UK’s finest creative talent access to Hollywood heavyweights.

The competition is open to anyone connected to the UK film industry, including writing, production and gaming.

Potential entries could include an idea for the next big franchise, a new film technology or an innovative concept that could create new markets or audiences for film.

Selected by an expert panel chaired by Iain Smith, the winner will be flown to LA this October to take part in a tailored business programme of one-to-one meetings with key industry figures in Hollywood, and pitch their big idea to a leading heavyweight from their industry.

UKTI will also work with the winner to perfect their pitch.

The winner will also attend the Britannia Awards on Oct 30 and network with representatives from the US and UK film industry.

All entries must be received by Sept 17. Full details, including eligibility, can be found on the UKTI website.
