Acclaimed Kiwi actor Danielle Cormack, award-winning director and writer Roseanne Liang, and television critic Alex Casey are among the panellists who'll be shortlisting entries for TVNZ's New Blood Web Series Competition, which opens today.
The TVNZ New Blood Web Series Competition, supported by NZ On Air, is calling for aspiring content creators to submit a web series pilot episode. 10 pilots will make the shortlist, selected by the panellists, and the winner will be voted by the public. The winner will receive $100,000 to make a complete web series, which will launch through TVNZ's online channels - the home of local short form content.
The varied panel, including actors, directors, You Tube stars and media commentators, are on the lookout for creative new concepts that will resonate with New Zealanders.
Entries are now open and close 31st March 2017. Public voting begins in May. To find out if you're eligible to enter and to see a full list of the terms and conditions, visit: tvnz.co.nz/webseries-comp
