Objective

The PAGE Awards competition was established in 2003 by an alliance of Hollywood producers, agents, and development execs. Our goal: to discover the most exciting new scripts by up-and-coming writers from across the country and around the world. And due to the success of our winning writers, the PAGE Awards competition has rapidly become one of the most important sources for new screenwriting talent within the Hollywood community and worldwide.

One of the most frustrating things about so many screenwriting contests - both for the writers and for the judges - is that scripts of different genres are in competition with each other. But how can you compare a comedy to an action script? How do you rank a family film against a thriller? Moreover, why is it that most contests only reward the screenwriter who writes a powerful drama, while many of the most successful movies made in Hollywood are comedies, thrillers, action flicks and family films?

In order to address this problem, and to encourage a wide variety of screenwriting talent, each year the PAGE judges present a total of 31 Awards to new screenwriters in ten different genre categories:

Action/Adventure
Comedy
Drama
Family Film
Historical Film
Science Fiction
Thriller/Horror
Short Film
TV Drama Pilot
TV Comedy Pilot

This year's winning writers will receive a total of over $50,000 in cash and prizes, plus extensive industry exposure for their work! Most importantly, the contest is judged entirely by working professionals in the film and television industry, so all PAGE Awards contestants have the opportunity to get their scripts into the hands of Hollywood professionals currently in search of new talent.

Awards

$25,000 Grand Prize, PLUS Gold, Silver & Bronze prizes in all ten genre categories.

Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter Larry Postel

An interview with screenwriter Larry Postel regarding the PAGE International Writing Competition.

Q: What's the title of the script you entered in this contest, and what's it about?

A: X-MAS FILES. It's a holiday comedy about three kids who are recruited by Santa to help defend the North Pole against a Christmastime invasion by a bitter-ex elf. I like to say that it's SPY KIDS meets THE GRINCH and THE DIRTY DOZEN.

Q: What made you enter this particular contest? Have you entered any other contests with this script? If so, how did you do?

A: I liked the fact that PAGE broke the entries down by genre/category. I was also attracted to their substantial prize list. I also entered X-MAS FILES in the 2005 Worldfest Competition and won Platinum First Prize in the family category.

Q: Were you satisfied with the adminstration of the contest? Did they meet their deadlines? Did you receive all the awards that were promised?

A: I was extremely satisfied with the administration of PAGE. They met every deadline and kept me posted every step of the way. Their coordinator, Jen Berg, is incredibly responsive and attentive to the entrant's needs and questions.

Q: Were you given any feedback on your script? If so, did you find the feedback helpful?

A: I did not request feedback, but I know PAGE does offer it.

Q: Has your success in this contest helped you market your script? Were you contacted by any agents, managers or producers?

A: Yes, the success in PAGE has helped me a tremendous amount. I had numerous requests based on PAGE's press releases and publicity. In addition, I played up the award in my own queries, which resulted in many more requests. I was contacted by top level agents, managers and producers. Some of PAGE's judges also requested the script for an "official" read.

Q: What's your background? Have you written any other screenplays or television scripts?

A: I have been writing screenplays for over 20 years. I am a fulltime freelance advertising copywriter. I have written many other screenplays and recently received an assignment to write a low budget horror-comedy for an indie producer.

Q: Do you live in Los Angeles? If not, do you have any plans to move there?

A: I live in Dallas and have no plans to move to Los Angeles. However, I would certainly travel there for meetings.

Q: What's next? Are you working on a new script?

A: I'm always working on a new script. Plus, I'm currently working on the assignment previously mentioned. That producer is so pleased with what I've done that he's already offered me another assignment.
