A Mini-Screenwriting Contest

A Mini-Screenwriting Contest
(a.k.a. “The $3 Screenwriting Contest”)

Cost: $3 per entry
Deadline: Dec. 31st, 2011

What are you doing over the holidays?
Will one of your New Year’s resolutions be “write a screenplay?”

This goal of this mini-contest is inspire you to get a jump
on that script idea you’ve been kicking around in your head.

Send me your logline and first 3 pages of your script before the new year.

All genres welcome.

I will read all submissions and choose FIVE winners.

The winners will have until June 1st, 2012 to send their entire script.

Winners will be chosen at my discretion, based on
the appeal of the concept and professionalism of the writing.

I’ll read the full scripts of the top 5 winners
and give each one a free phone consultation.

The winners will also be posted on my website.

(in two easy steps)

Step 1:

It’s on the right side of the page.

Step 2:
Email me – [email protected]

In the body of an email, write the title, genre, and
logline (100 words max) of the screenplay.

Then attach the first THREE pages (max) of your script.
I accept .pdf or .fdr formats.

I must receive your script and payment before 11:59pm on Dec. 31st, 2011.

C’mon, it’s only 3 pages.

    Q. Are Concept & story lines kept confidential when entering your contest? Shimya

  2. Ingrid Elkner says:

    What if it’s a 4-page short script? Still send the three pages and leave you wanting more?

  3. Eric says:

    Shimya: I will keep them secret…and safe. If you are a winner though, I may ask your permission to post them on my site. And if you’re worried about your idea, you should always register with the WGA. (But I also have posted about how worrying about your ideas is probably not necessary: Will Someone Steal My Movie Idea)

    Ingrid: Yep! :)
