Online Pitch Competition - Web Series contest

Just seen this site is linking to here -- hello!

From Online Pitch Competition facebook page:-
Got a great idea for a webseries? We want to hear it!

We want stories that cross platforms, cross borders, cross boundaries but hit home. Write what you know. Write what you want to see. Write something new.

We're putting together a slate of online dramas to pitch to broadcasters, brands and social media networks, and we're opening up the field to students and young storytellers. If you’ve got a great idea for an online series that could play on Myspace, Bebo or Facebook, PITCH IT TO US!

The best entries could be further developed under the auspices of Met Film’s BAFTA-winning Russell Stopford and big-hitting online producer Serena Cullen—executive producer of the first show to cross from digital to TV, Bebo series Sofia’s Diary, which aired on Fiver in the UK.

If your pitch is taken forward and commissioned, you'll get a story credit and a producing, directing or writing role in the production.

Remember: we want episodic narratives that work in the busy busy busy environment of the internet. Focus in on the story you want to tell, and the characters you want to explore. Apart from that, there are no limits. Any genre, any style, any perspective—just keep it original!
