Objective

Thank you to everyone who has entered the contest so far, we’re really pleased with the screenplay submissions this time around! We’ve decided to extend a little longer to give teleplay and book writers a bigger chance in our “Book with the Best Screen Potential” and “Best Teleplay or Pilot” awards. As we only introduced those two new awards late in the contest, we’re extending the contest by two weeks to give writers more time to make the most of them! Further film screenplay submissions will also be welcome of course but we’re especially keen to extend our offerings for book and teleplay writers at this time to make the most of the judging capacity we’ve made available.

This way more authors and TV writers can take advantage of our “Book with the Best Screen Potential” and “Best Teleplay or Pilot” awards – since we’re pleased with the number of movie screenplays already submitted we’ll be focusing on submissions for the new prizes in these weeks.
