Winning our monthly competition comes with its share of perks, but everyone who enters this contest comes out ahead, because every single logline submitted receives detailed feedback in five days or less.

No budget? No problem. We know how painstakingly difficult it is to make a movie. Heck, we even know how hard it is just to write a good script (it's one of the biggest, most horribly unappreciated but crucially important parts of the entire process) so don't worry if your budget was tiny (or non-existent). The fact is we're sick of Hollywood. They only care about brands and marketing.
