Make your TV idea a reality.

Test Card is a new award from the Edinburgh TV Festival’s talent schemes to unearth new TV talent. We’re asking you to make one episode of a new TV show in any genre.

You don’t need any experience in television to enter a project; if you’ve got an idea and a smartphone you can put together your pilot. You’re getting the chance to have your work seen by top TV commissioners and heads of development. Winners will be awarded a trip to the Edinburgh TV Festival, (passes and accommodation included) as well as work experience in the development department of a production company specialising in the genre of your show.

For more information read our FAQ and Terms and Conditions. Entries open May 4. Sign up to our mailing list for announcements and launch information. Please email for any further queries.
