The Competition is designed to discover and develop the best new writers and projects and connect them with co-production partners to turn them into TV series for the global market.

The competition intends to uncover compelling contemporary stories that can reach a 21st century audience across platforms, with a shortform episodic release across digital platforms, followed by a longform window on traditional television.
