Just in case you couldn't be bothered clicking on the link above here's the key bits. In summary:
- Rewrites are going out and are still being sent out
- A few sketches will go straight in the show without a rewrite request (tweaked by script ed)
So there is hope even if you didn't hear anything about a rewrite.
And just to put those odds into context one show will have about 15 sketches so that's 60 out of 15,000 will make the cut.
From the BBC website:
You can rest assured that any pieces of work that arrived before the deadline have been considered, but you won't get an email from us about your entry UNLESS:
We really like your idea but we think you might be able to tweak it. In this case you'll be sent some edit notes to the email address the sketch was sent from, along with a new deadline to submit your rewrite. A re-written sketch still might not make the final programme, but it does mean that we really like the idea and think we might be able to use it. Some rewrite suggestions have already gone out, but we'll be sending lots more requests over the next couple of weeks, so do keep an eye on your inbox.
OR, your sketch has been used in the recording as you sent it to us and we need you to send us your payment information.
In a few cases it might be that the edits we need to make to your sketch are very minor and will be done by the script editors here. If that happens and your sketch is in the final programme, you'll get an email from us letting you know and asking for your payment details in the same way as anyone else who's been asked to make a rewrite themselves. We won't know exactly which sketches are going to air until the programme is recorded and edited, so you won't get an email confirming your work's inclusion until a few weeks from now.
