The winners of the Studio21 Script Competition were announced at the prestigious C21 Drama Awards held at Content London.

From the 22 shortlisted projects, 6 Finalists were selected to pitch their projects live at Content London.

An esteemed judging panel, drawn from Studio21’s advisory board, read all 6 Finalists’ pilot scripts and series pitch materials.

The judges remarked on the incredibly high standard of the writing and projects this year, with all six projects garnering praise from the panel.

In the end, the judges couldn’t split two projects and the prize money has been doubled so both will receive £10,000 and move their projects forward with Studio 21.
