Our Criteria

Applications are open to companies working in all genres, and from across the UK. Across the programme we are looking for diversity of voice, insight and experience. We encourage applications from all sectors of the community.

Criteria for applicant companies


Less than £6m revenue in their last financial year (unless a purely scripted company in which case the increased upper limit of £10m revenue applies)


Applicant companies must have two broadcast credits for their programmes in the last two years


There are a limited number of places for indie start-ups; founders must have three broadcast credits as a producer, executive producer or series producer in the last three years


Indies must be qualifying independent producers, not more than 25% owned by any company that also owns a UK broadcaster
