Entries open to the Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award for under 30s - winning writer gets a trip to New York and US$2,500

Entries are now open for the Foundation of The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Sir Peter Ustinov Television Scriptwriting Award.

The competition is designed to motivate non-American novice writers under the age of 30, and to offer them the recognition and encouragement that might lead to a successful career in television scriptwriting. Entrants are asked to create a completed half-hour to one-hour (commercial length) English-language television drama script. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2012.

The winner will be flown to New York City to be presented with an award and a US$2,500 prize at the International Emmy® World Television Festival on November 17, 2012. The winning script will be read by actors in front of an audience at the Festival, and the winner will be invited to take part in the red carpet festivities at the 40th International Emmy® Awards on November 19, 2012.
Sir Peter Ustinov, the quintessential writer, director, and performer, graciously gave his name to the Foundation's Television Scriptwriting Award. In addition to his acting career, Sir Ustinov was an accomplished writer, as proven by the 23 plays he wrote.

The Foundation organizes and administers the educational programs of The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. It has its own constitution, officers and independent Board of Trustees.
