En Screenwriting Challenge – alltså en tävling i att skriva för scenen eller om man så vill en manustävling – startade nyss! Amerikansk, men med deltagare från hela världen vad jag kan se. Startavgift, som vanligt, dock lägre om man anmäler sig senast 24/3.
Så här står det på deras sida. Du kan också klicka in där och se vad tidigare deltagare tyckt. Lycka till om du vill delta! Om inte finns det fler skrivartävlingar här.
The 13th Annual Screenwriting Challenge is a competition open to screenwriters around the world. There are 3 rounds of competition. In the 1st Round (April 29 – May 7), writers are placed randomly in heats and are assigned a genre, subject, and character assignment (see examples of past assignments here). Writers have 8 days to write an original short screenplay no longer than 12 pages. The judges choose a top 5 in each heat to advance to the 2nd Round (June 23-26) where writers receive new assignments, only this time they have just 3 days to write an 8 page (maximum) short screenplay. Judges choose a top 5 in each heat from the 2nd Round to advance to the 3rd and final round of the competition where writers are challenged to write a 5 page (maximum) screenplay in just 24 hours (July 29-30). A panel of judges review the final round screenplays and winners are selected to share in over thousands in cash and prizes. Sound like fun? Join the competition below…
