BCG Pro Talent Awards

BCG Pro Talent Awards

The BCG Pro Talent Awards celebrate the best up-and-coming British comedy writers, producers and performers. They're designed to both challenge and develop entrants' abilities, and to showcase the best new talents to the comedy industry.

Entry is free for BCG Pro subscribers. Why not join BCG Pro today?

There are two levels of award: one for Starter members and one for our other members; so you're only ever competing with your peers.

BCG Pro Talent Awards: Perfomance

The Performance award is for those who perform comedy live. We're accepting submissions in the form of 5-minute video clips. The best 6 entrants in the competition will be invited to take part in an exciting live final (date and location TBC), alongside a judges' Starter winner.

Prizes include expert coaching and a gig slot at a top club.

This award involves sending us two 90-second sketches to a given brief. Every script will be read by at least two readers, with the work of the top 6 selected writers then presented to our judging panel.

Prizes include mentoring and exposure to production partners.

Submit your video sketch, short film, podcast or other audio project, and our industry judging panel will select the best.

Prizes include exhibition of the winning clips on British Comedy Guide, promotion to our huge audience, and mentoring and work placement opportunities.
