The Funny Women Next Up Comedy Shorts Award team also worked day and night watching 100’s of videos over the last few months to bring the selection down to 23. The longlist represents a variety of eclectic comedy genres. Faced with the ongoing challenge of creating, producing, and directing video shorts for the majority of the last two years, it was truly heartening to see how many of our entrants had overcome those difficulties and produced such brilliantly original content.
This year they also received a mammoth number of scripts for the Comedy Writing Award sponsored by Sky Studios. With the help of our fantastic panel of readers from the comedy industry they read and scored over 220 scripts and narrowed them down to a longlist of 21. The standard was high as ever this year, but the panel has selected an incredible range of scripts that cover all kinds of comedy and we are excited to move forward to the next stage.
Registration for the 2021 Funny Women heat Content Creator Award is open until 14th September.
