Ones to Watch

About the Scheme

Ones to Watch gives television’s best and brightest access to inspiring sessions, creative debate and unrivalled networking opportunities in August, as well as support and mentoring throughout the year. A place on Ones to Watch is a life-changing, money-can’t-buy opportunity.

The 2020 edition of Ones to Watch will take place over 6 days in August - 3 days of exclusive Ones to Watch content and 3 days to 'attend' the Edinburgh TV Festival, which this year will be a digital event. These dates are still TBC, but we will inform all applicants as soon as we possibly can.
