Netflix offer want to showcase a wider range of perspectives on Netflix UK social media channels. To that end, they’re inviting people to pitch ideas for video essays on Netflix titles. Especially encouraging Black creatives and those from under-represented groups, as well as those who live outside London, to submit ideas.

You can do this by submitting your proposal below, telling which title or theme you’d like to talk about, and summarising the main points you’d want to make. They’re not looking exclusively for pieces about Black or minority experience. This is about opening up our platform to distinctive voices regardless of subject matter.

If they like your idea they’ll ask you to write the full essay and send you a legal agreement to sign and then you can get started! Once the script is finalised, they will edit the video for you, with your input – for example, and can help you record the voiceover remotely from home. Netflix pay £800 per essay upon publication. Deadline 31st August.
