The BBC Wants To Help Fans Make Doctor Who FanFic And Films [Video]

mission dalek

Doctor Who fans (in the UK at least) have a chance to submit a digital story to the BBC for their Mission Dalek contest. Winning entires will get to visit the Twelfth Doctor’s set and meet Peter Capaldi.

The criteria is pretty simple but the options are vast: create a digital story (i.e. video, animation and images, even submit original digital artwork) using clues from the contest’s The Doctor’s Year 2000 Diary to explain where the Doctor has been and how he ended up facing the Daleks. They’re even offering downloadable assets to help you with your work.

This is for U.K. residents only and open until September 9th.

Check out the competition video after the break.

This sounds super exciting for creative Whovians! But you should keep the following in mind from their rules and conditions section:

Other than respect to pre-cleared materials provided by the BBC, entrants retain the copyright in their original ideas but grant to the BBC a perpetual non-exclusive royalty-free licence to broadcast their entry (whether text, photographs, audio or videos) across all media, as well as use it on any online platforms. For the avoidance of doubt, no fees or expenses will be paid for the creation of any part of the entry.

Then again, allowing the BBC to use your work now and forever might be a small price to pay to visit the Doctor Who set. Besides, it might help you get noticed. Don’t forget that the current title sequence was designed by a fan.
