Rules

All submissions must be received by 11:59 PM January 1, 2013 (final/late deadline).

Submitted screenplays must be the unproduced, unoptioned, and original work of the writer(s). There must be no dispute about the ownership of submitted screenplay(s) or the writers' right to submit screenplay(s).

Adaptations of previously published material are acceptable if the material is public domain, or if the writer can provide written proof of his/her right to adapt the material into screenplay form.

Screenplays by more than one writer are eligible, but only one prize will be given per winner, and it will be the writers' responsibility to distribute the prize. If writers of a script are unable to agree on the distribution of a prize, their script will be disqualified.

All writers of submitted scripts must be at least 18 years of age.

Screenplay must be in English, submitted in a standard format such as PDF, .rtf or .doc. Hard copies must be printed single or double-sided 3-hole white paper with the pages numbered, fastened with 2-3 brads and blank cardstock covers. All scripts must have title, name of writer(s) and contact information on the title page. Scripts should be between 90-130 pages and no longer than 150 pages in standard spec screenplay format. Please add an additional $10 for screenplays over 125 pages. Font must be 12-point Courier, Courier New or Courier Final Draft. No other fonts will be accepted.

All submissions must contain eligible screenplay(s), a completed application, entry fee, and, if you want notification that we have received your materials, a self-addressed-stamped postcard. Hard copy submissions sent via USPS or a courier service (UPS, FedEx, etc.) must not require a signature upon delivery.

Judging will be performed by trained readers, industry professionals. The finalists' scripts will be read by Jim Cirile and selected industry professionals. The decisions of the Judges will be final.

Writers On The Storm may substitute alternative prizes of equal or greater value in place of previously announced prizes.

Round one scripts are awarded a grade by our judges for both script and for writer. These grades are: pass, consider with reservations, consider, strong consider, and recommend. Only scripts that receive a 'consider with reservations' for script or better (roughly the top 10% of all submissions) advance to the quarterfinal round. Unfortunately, screenplays that receive a 'consider with reservations' or better for writer will not advance. Thus it is entirely possible that you receive a consider for writer but a pass for script. What this means is that the analyst found the writing craft to be very promising, but the script itself needs more work. This is actually fairly common. While the script will not advance to the quarterfinals, it is validation that the reader felt there was talent on the page.

Entry fees are nonrefundable. Make checks payable to Coverage, Ink.
