Agree with Tim. Lots of sketches can be slanted to documentary so if there's a choice go for Kitchen Sink Drama.

Has anyone sent anything in and did you get an confirmation email?

Cheers.

Runner = one sketch.

EDIT: though that might just be me and might depend on how long each bit is.

Also, if a sketch is suitable for more than one different category (e.g. kitchen sink and documentary), is it worth sending it twice?


If they like it enough they'll find a way of using it for either category. I'd only send it once. That's what I'm doing with my Jane Austen-style kitchen sink documentary featuring robot spies.

Everybody will have sent documentary sketches.


Why do you think that?

Well, it's more well known than kitchen sink.

I seem to have more kitchen sink than anything!

Though I use that description loosely.

I look forward to hearing your work then... I could only come up with two, but again quite loose.

Done! My hat is now in the ring.

Feels quite nice to relax in the final hours before a deadline.

Sent mine in last night. Didn't receive any confirmation emails, which makes me a little nervous, but hopefully they got them.

Nice to get this deadline out of the way - no more guilt about not writing sketches every minute of the day!
