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.

Interviews

MovieBytes Interview:
Screenwriter fred perry

An interview with screenwriter fred perry 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: FIVE DAYS IN CALCUTTA is a short comedy about an absurdly botched suicide attempt that reunites two brothers, who are polar opposites.

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

A: The PAGE International Screenplay Competition has an outstanding reputation, solid industry connections, and is incredibly well run. This script also won Honorable Mention in the 2012, Scriptvamp "Shorts" contest.

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

A: I think it's the most professionally administered competition anywhere. Period. All deadlines were met, and since it's only been ten days since the winners were announced, I haven't yet received the award$$$.

Q: How long did it take you to write the script? Did you write an outline beforehand? How many drafts did you write?

A: First draft took one week to complete. No outline. Two subsequent drafts.

Q: What kind of software did you use to write the script, if any? What other kinds of writing software do you use?

A: Final Draft.

Q: Do you write every day? How many hours per day?

A: I write at least five/six days a week, and when on a project, will work up to ten hours per day, or until I drop, whichever comes first.

Q: Do you ever get writer's block? If so, how do you deal with that?

A: Constantly. I go to the movies or gold prospecting. And if neither of those clears the webs, I just grind my teeth. It eventually works itsef out.

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

A: I'm a former special ed. teacher for the severely disabled. One of my feature scripts, CROSSINGS, won the 2011-2012 Filmmakers International Screenplay Competition, and was just optioned to a production company in London. I have written three other feature scripts, and one of my 2-act plays, THE ACENSION OF TWYLA POTTS, was just published by Heartland Plays.

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

A: I high-tailed it out of L.A. two years ago, and am now living happily on the central coast near San Luis Obispo.

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

A: Am currently doing a re-write on a metaphysical thriller, TERMINUS.
