The Network 2021 Application Form

This is the application form for The Network 2021.

Before you start, please ensure you meet the eligibility criteria as described here.

Please also ensure that you have read the TV Festival website thoroughly, including our guidance for applicants, and watch our round up of the scheme. This will give you a good understanding of what the Network is and what you might be able to get out of it.

You won’t be able to save your entry and come back to it later, so be sure you have the time to complete the whole form before you begin. A PDF of the questions is available here. We would suggest writing your answers in a Word document or similar and copying them across when you’re ready.

When uploading your CV and photo, the upload box will appear in the middle of the form, so you will have to scroll down to find it.

If you need any further assistance to complete your application or have any questions, please email
