In our last update, we announced the winners of the 2012 Screenplay Festival competition. We would again like to take this opportunity to thank all of the writers who entered their scripts, and to encourage everyone to keep writing!
We also want to let everyone know that for 2013 we are bringing back the more restricted contest that we ran last year, 100 Screenplays. Instead of accepting an unlimited number of entries and then taking 6 months to choose the winner, with 100 Screenplays we only accept 100 scripts and then get the winner announced within one month. Visit 100 Screenplays to learn more!Read More
