The New Voice Awards are the TV Festival’s recognition of undiscovered creatives and the companies who do the most to support them.
Entries for the awards have now closed, with the shortlists to be announced in the coming weeks.
The New Voice Awards will be held at Rich Mix in London on Tuesday 26 February 2019. Before the ceremony we are holding a writers' panel, with Daniel Lawrence Taylor (Timewasters), Sophie Petzal (Blood) and Shivani Thussu (2018 winner of the All3Media New Script Award) talking about starting and sustaining a career as a TV scriptwriter.
A ticket to the New Voice Awards gives you access to both the panel and the ceremony.
