The talent showcase is open to emerging talent of any age 


2023 Hot Shot Hannah Moulder

Broadcast is opening its 2024 emerging talent initiative, seeking out the brightest and most promising individuals from across the television industry.

Hot Shots seeks to celebrate people who are excelling early on in their professional lives, and those further along who have injected momentum into their careers with significant recent achievements.

We’re looking for people who work in broadcasting, production, post-production and talent management. 

We particularly welcome entries that highlight the diverse nature of the industry in terms of gender, race, ethnicity, disability, geography and social background, and we are keen to hear from anyone who has taken a non-traditional route into the sector.

The Hot Shots initiative is open to people of any ages. It was previously only open to those under 30 years of age, but in 2022 the age restriction was removed to recognise that not everyone has equal access to opportunities at a young age.
