Applications open for BBC Ignite

BBC Children’s Animation is looking for fresh, bold, innovative new animation ideas for a fully funded development opportunity.

You may be taking your first steps into animation, be a long-standing industry professional with something you’ve always wanted to explore or a production company or animation studio with an exciting new idea. Whatever your level of experience, they want to see your proposal with a view to developing it into an Industry Standard proof of concept with living breathing characters in a world that children will love.

Up to three ideas will receive full development funding to create two minute animated pilots which will be considered for a commission by BBC Children’s.

They're looking for submissions from sole creators over the age of 18, collectives, animation studios, production companies, or anything in-between, where creatives would like to co-develop with the BBC rather than engage with the BBC via the usual commissioning process (where applicable).

Find out more about BBC Ignite and how to apply here.

The deadline for submitting initial ideas is Sunday 15th August 2021.
