Nick Animation Program Writers
Writing Program

Founded in the year 2000, the Nickelodeon Writing Program is a full-time, paid, yearlong development Program for television comedy writers with unique voices and from underrepresented communities. Join us at the studio in Burbank for classes and workshops to sharpen your skills, executive mentorship and networking to build your professional relationships, and the opportunity to work in the iconic live-action and animation writers’ rooms at Nick. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dedicate yourself to the craft of writing and build your career from the ground up.

The Nick Writing Program is not a writing contest – It’s a launching pad for diverse and emerging creatives. If you bring the unique voice and innovative ideas for kids’ and family content, we’ll help you launch a career with all the tools you’ll need to succeed in the industry for years to come.

We need your talent and perspective, so come tell us your story!

We can’t create the most awesome kids’ content in the world without the most awesome artists in the world.

The Nickelodeon Artist Program is a 6-month, paid talent development program for aspiring animation artists.  We seek out talented designers, painters, story artists, and CG artists with diverse voices from underrepresented communities, with the goal of mentoring, developing, and staffing the next generation of inclusive storytellers and content creators.

The Artist Program features three training paths: General Design, Storyboard, and CG Generalist. Each path offers professional development in addition to an apprenticeship on an animated show with exclusive access to directors, supervisors, and lead artists on our productions. 


Submission Period is Open July 1 – August 1

This #BlackHistoryMonth, we’re continuing to reflect and uplift the voices and stories that enrich our studio and productions every day. Join us as we share just a few of our personal connections to the Black community, honor their experiences, and pay their journeys forward. Meet Vassiea Hurt,Story Production Coordinator at Nickelodeon Animation. "Simply put, family entertainment has a special place in my upbringing. I have this fond memory of watching Rugrats in preschool, loving the character of Susie Carmichael and getting the opportunity to see Rugrats: LIVE with my mom and childhood bestie. It was such a treat to see and core memories were definitely made that day. Many years have gone since, but I still remember the feeling of wonder and joy that was able to be shared with my mom and friend. There's power in stories and how they can help bring people together, spark conversation, and plant creative seeds in others. That thought of seeing someone on screen looking fabulous, or overcoming an obstacle, and knowing someone is on the other side saying, "Hm, maybe I can do that too!" That type of representation is important." -Vassiea Hurt
