LB: Found in My Inbox

This little newsletter about what’s happening with various screenwriting contests appeared in my e-mail inbox over the weekend so I thought I’d pass it on.

Bankable Script Screenwriting Contest

Enter The Bankable Script Screenwriting Contest and win $10,000 IN CASH, free promotion, PLUS access to Hollywood agents and industry leaders working together to help you market your script. We want you to succeed, so we make it our goal to vault your screenwriting career.

The Bankable Script contest has no “early” or “late” fees, no deadlines, and no special discounts. You submit your script when it’s ready, and the entry fee is always $29.00.

What makes a script bankable?  Mass appeal.  That’s why Bankable Script has gathered a team of experienced readers from diverse backgrounds to evaluate your script.

We at Bankable Script care about the quality of our feedback. That’s why we’re the only screenplay competition offering a 100% money-back guarantee!

Better your odds! We only accept 1,000 scripts per contest, so your work receives more attention and consideration than it would in larger contestant pools.

For every 1,000 scripts we read, there is one winner, who gets $10,000. Four runners-up receive $1,000 each.

  Sedona Film Festival

The 18th Annual Sedona International Film Festival will take place February 23 – March 3, 2013 in Sedona, Arizona. The nine-day festival features more than 145 films, including features, documentaries, shorts and animation. Filmmakers and audiences from around the world have heralded Sedona’s festival as one of their favorites. The Frank Warner Workshop series brings Academy Award-winning, industry professionals to Sedona to teach, inspire and share their knowledge with the next generation of filmmakers. Students get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to work shoulder-to-shoulder with the industry’s finest. For more information, please call the festival office at (928) 282-1177 or 

I notice that TVWriter™ ‘s contests, The People’s Pilot and The Spec Scriptacular, aren’t listed on the, um, “Scriptdoodle” site. My guess is that they probably should, but damned if I can find any easily accessed info about how to make that happen.

Anybody have any suggestions?  (Yeah, Screenplay Contests.Com, I’m talking to you.)
