Freelancers who meet one of the following criteria will be eligible to apply:

As part of the application process, you will be asked to supply a document supporting your status as above, proof of your most recent self-assessment tax return OR freelance contract to support your freelancer status, and a short statement explaining your circumstances.

Pass waivers are funded by our charity The TV Foundation – please consider making a donation to support our free to access schemes in this challenging year.

WHAT YOUR PASS FUNDS

Did you know that we're a charitable organisation supporting the industry's talent pipeline?

We do not make a profit. Instead your Festival Pass cash is invested into our TV Foundation. Alongside our much-coveted existing schemes, The Network and Ones to Watch which have helped over 4000 individuals, the Foundation also supports our new scheme TV PhD, our annual New Voice Awards, our partnerships with industry initiatives and year-round events on topics from bullying to mental health.

Our scheme delegates benefit from fully-funded places at the Festival, which includes tailored workshops, masterclasses and networking. Plus we offer year-round mentoring, training, job-placements and events. All thanks to paying delegates and sponsors.
