Pride Films and Plays' Women’s Work Contest has Stage, Screenplay, and Shorts categories. We aspire to honor excellence in work written by women for film or stage with lesbian characters or themes.
Notification: June 30, 2013
You may enter as many scripts as you wish, but each entry form can be accompanied by only one (1) script. Each additional entry will require a separate entry form and separate entry Fee. Only one free application may be submitted. If submitting a second script there is a $10 discount for the second entry fee. The full entry fee is due for all entries made after that.
A new category for 2012 is called Shorts, so entries for either stage or screen that are less than 30 pages will be accepted into that category.
The judges will name five finalists in both the Stage and Screenplay categories for full-length submissions, based on a scoring sheet found in the contest rules. The top two scoring scripts in each category will receive a cash prize of $400, and will be performed as staged readings July 27 to 29 during the Women’s Work Weekend at the Hoover-Leppen Theater at Center On Halsted in Chicago. Authors will be invited to participate in up to ten hours of rehearsal with cast and director prior to the performance.
In the Shorts category, up to 8 screenplays and plays will be selected to be performed during the Women’s Work Weekend, and each author whose work is presented in that festival will receive a $100 cash prize. Authors will be invited to participate in one rehearsal with cast and director prior to the performance.
$400 for full length, $100 for shorts.
