The Screenwriter’s Challenge 2010

Screenwriter, action hero

Screenwriter, hero of action

This one came from the handy Mandy mailing list, a very useful little list for anyone in the film industry who may be looking for work, which is a set which generally includes everyone in the film industry. Here are the deets:

How it Works

● Anyone may compete from anywhere in the world.

● There are 2 rounds.

● 1st Round (April 16 – 24, 2010) : Writers are placed randomly in heats. Each heat is assigned a genre and a subject (ex. comedy : competing lemonade stands or horror : a family reunion).

● Writers have 8 days to write an original short screenplay (15 pages max) based on their genre and subject assignment.

● Winners are chosen from the 1st Round to advance to the 2nd round and compete for over $20,000 in cash and prizes.

● 2nd Round (June 4 – 5, 2010) : All of the writers receive the same genre and subject at midnight (EST time) and have just 24 hours to write an original short screenplay (15 pages max.).

● A panel of judges review the final round screenplays and winners are chosen!

To enter, first check out the Fine Print and then register via this link and pay your $49 (no, not cheap, but quite a BIT cheaper than a professional critique, which you’re getting with the entry anyway).
