Heroines of business, science and technology are the subject of Austria’s first ever screenwriting contest for series. The Ministry of Digital and Economic Affairs issued a call in November 2019 to submit ideas for authentic female characters. Conceived and organised with FISA, this contest seeks to help improve the way female characters are portrayed in domains where women are traditionally underre presented. At the same time, it also provides incentives to develop series in Austria that bear the potential to yield international co-operation. The best 6 ideas will be awarded a prize money of EUR 20 000, and their inventors will be invited to a mentoring programme to be concluded by a pitching event in the autumn of 2020.
