SBS is seeking proposals for one-hour documentaries exploring multicultural Australia.
The four winners will air next year, forming season two of the SBS series Untold Australia.
Season one's highglights including a foray into the Australian-Indian community (Indian Wedding Race), into an ultra-orthodox Jewish community in the heart of Melbourne (Strictly Jewish), and to Norfolk Island to explore its changing relationship with Australia (A Modern Mutiny).
“The first season of Untold Australia was very well received by audiences who had the opportunity to explore and engage with unexplored and unexpected parts of Australian culture", SBS's Head of Documentaries Joseph Maxwell said.
"This is an important season for SBS and reaffirms our commitment to single documentaries.”
SBS is encouraging "proposals which are celebratory as well as issue- based. They will be observational documentaries and led by strong engaging characters. A short character reel is vital."
Proposals should be 3-5 pages and they must have accompanying pitch reels (2 – 5 mins) including a short statement about the online potential of the idea, and are to be sent to SBS Documentaries' Leigh Humberdross: email@example.com
The deadline for proposals is August 22, with the four winners chosen by September 5.
