Two months ago we opened the doors of our first ever script writing competition. It was an exciting 2 months with scripts arriving on a daily basis. Soon we were knee‐deep in great ideas, crazy characters, brilliant twists and silly situations.
We recently released the 16 shortlisted scripts earlier in the week and now those 16 will be reduced to just 3.
It’s been so much harder than we realised to choose the winners out of so many good scripts, so we have decided to add 3 runners up who we felt also deserved a mention.
The winners will each receive:
£250 in cash, have their scripts transformed into professionally filmed sketches and included into series 1 of ’12 Sketches in a London House’ as well as be invited to join the core writing team, and more.
For all those who didn’t win this time, we say a massive thank you for supporting and believing in us enough to get involved, and that without your support we would not have been able to create this series.
We also wanted to say we’ve really enjoyed hosting the competition and will be opening up our second competition for series 2 very soon. Join the mailing list at the bottom of the page so you keep up to date with all our latest sketches and competitions.
Ok, so without further ado, the winners of the ’12 Sketches in a London House’ series 1 script writing competition are:
- WINNER: Nicholas Wooster
- Runner‐up: Sarah Polly
- WINNER: Richard Tomlin
- Runner‐up: Tom Williams
- WINNER: Ian Drummond
- Runner up: Steve Hili
We will be contacting the winners very soon to finalise the scripts before filming the sketches in the next 2 weeks.
Thank you everyone and please support the series and support British Comedy!
