The Australian Writers' Foundation and Southern Star Children's Television Production Initiative - Industry Placement.

Applications Open, 18 September 2006

Applications for the Australian Writers' Foundation and Southern Star Children's Television Production Initiative are now open.

The successful candidate will receive an industry placement with Southern Star Entertainment allowing them to participate in script development meetings of a children's television production. Southern Star will also pay the writer $5,000 (which would include air fares and accommodation if based interstate).

This fantastic career opportunity, announced at the 2006 AWGIE Awards in August, aims to give a writer exposure to the requirements of writing for a children's audience and help develop an awareness of the disciplines peculiar to story telling for children.

Applications are invited from both new writers and those who have experience in other areas of performance writing, such as adult drama. What is required however is a genuine aspiration to want to write television stories for children, be it animated or live action, pre-school or "C" drama.

Applicants must be members of the Australian Writers' Guild and in their applications should state why they want to write for children's television; what visions or goals they have in this genre; and list any relevant writing credits.

Applications (2 pages maximum) should be sent to admin@awg.com.au with "Southern Star Placement" in the subject header. Applications close 20 October 2006 and the successful candidate will be announced on Friday 15 December 2006. The judges' decision will be final. Both full and associate members of the Guild are welcome to apply.

For information on joining the Australian Writers' Guild please visit www.awg.com.au or call 02 9281 1544 (ext.222).
