The BCG Pro Talent Awards, launched earlier this year, seek to recognise and champion emerging comedy talent.
Spanning the three BCG Pro skillsets of Production, Performance and Writing, the Production title was the first to open, with an entry window running through February, March and April.
Operating both Starter and Pro categories, the Production competition aims to highlight off-screen talent, in roles such as editing, production design and lighting, producing, direction, casting, and other creative leads.
The winners are as follows.
BCG Pro: Big Red Button (director)
BCG Pro Starter: MelonComedy (editor)
Farrell, Chief Creative Officer at production company Objective Fiction, will now seek to find an appropriate work placement opportunity with Pro winners Big Red Button. Starter winners Lauren Taylor and Lorelei Mathias (of Melon Comedy) will also receive mentoring.
