Have you enjoyed being part of the ‘Diff Diaries project? Have you an idea for TV programme?
S4C is delighted to be part of the See Yourself on Screen Challenge initiative, launched by the BFI on 13/05. The challenge calls on young people aged 4-18 from across the UK to develop a mini-TV show they can film at home while on lockdown. The winning entrants will receive expert tuition before their mini-TV show is aired on national television by the end of the year.
Sioned Wyn Roberts, S4C’s Children’s Commissioner is judging the Welsh language submissions. Further details of the scheme including how to apply are HERE [Welsh instructions on a tab top right hand side].
The closing date is Monday 25 May, so time is tight!
