About the Scheme

Ones to Watch gives television’s best and brightest access to four days of inspiring sessions, creative debate and unrivalled networking opportunities at Edinburgh 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.

Ones to Watch 2020 will take place 24 - 28 August at the Edinburgh TV Festival.

COVID-19 Update
The aims for our Talent Schemes are to connect, educate and elevate talent in the TV industry. Bearing in mind the current situation around COVID-19 we’d like to assure you we are continuing with our plans for the delivery of our Schemes. We are continuously keeping up to date with the guidance from Health Protection Scotland, Public Health England and the government and will adapt the schemes as necessary and where advised to, whilst still ensuring a complete and rewarding programme. Applications are still open, and we will keep you updated via our social media, website and newsletters.
