There now follows a short public service announcement:
Shore Scripts Screenwriting Competition 2016 is open for submissions.
Shore Scripts have the highest calibre of industry judges of any screenwriting contest in the world. The winning scripts will be read by 32 Oscar, Bafta, Emmy, Golden Globe & Cannes award winning judges and sent to over 70 production companies and agents from around the world too.
As well discovering new and exciting writing talent through their regular Short and Feature Script competitions, Shore Scripts have also opened a new TV Pilot category, plus are introducing a fantastic Short Film Fund scheme designed to help produce one winning script with a minimum budget of £5,000. That adds up to over £15,000 in cash and prizes for the winners.
More information on each of the categories can be found on their website at www.shorescripts.com.
So, you know … you might win something. It’s got to be at least worth checking it out.
There is an entrance fee … however, if you fancy taking a punt on getting a free entry to either the Feature or the Short categories then you’re in luck.
Or might be.
I’ve got one feature and one short entry to give away. To win one, simply join the Shore Scripts mailing list by clicking this link:
… and sending them an email with MAILING LIST – JOBBING SCRIPTWRITER as the subject line.
Presumably the mailing list will be about the competition and things related to writing rather than adverts for PPI and viagra. Although, I don’t get any viagra ones any more … do you? Maybe some viagra spam might actually be useful?
If you do enter, let me know either in the comments or via email/social media – just so I can keep tabs on what’s going on. The two winners will be drawn at random at the end of the month.
