Pauline Hetrick September 16, 9: Remember—not all contests are equal. When my seven pages of useable as well as positive remarks came I was surprised. I thought only industry professionals were diligently sorting through these scripts to find the best ones. Lew September 16, 5: Companies who are InkTip members include: I received a call from Greg Beal the coordinator who told me that my script was in the next dozen scripts after the eight who received the fellowship.
Amazingly, a year later my script was under option and then purchased thus making me a professional and ineligible to enter again. As a special courtesy, writers who advance to the Semi-Final Round of competition will be invited to send us the latest draft of their script for the final two rounds of judging free of charge.
I knew something good was brewing with my screenplay and it was just a matter of time to find the right producer. I am trying to think of advice here for you, like writing letters to directors to get their interest.
I had been told by someone to give up on this script. The largest problem is that while there have been many made on it, now we have new war stories being told about Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. But after reading these notes this script has new life.
At the time, the pedigree of placing in the semifinals of the Nicholl Fellowship helped to bring credibility to my script and it got me read by agents and managers. The problems that you have may not help you get an agent, it may hinder your chances.
This is why you must do your research, read blogs, and find out as much about the contest before you send off your treasured project and hard-earned money.

The top screenwriting contests are extremely competitive with entries from around the world. A script that has been adapted from your own book, play, or other source material is eligible provided that you have retained all film and television rights to the property.
The competition is always fierce and the year I entered the prestigious Nicholl Fellowship there were 3, entries worldwide for it was 7, scripts! If you like, you may also include your WGA registration number, but that is not required.
The 2nd Allman Brother bassist died from it decades ago. You didnt mention if your screenplay is a Vietnam story, but I am assuming it is.
The same script that nearly won the Nicholl also was one of four runners up in the John Truby Writers Studio screenwriting contest back in the day out of hundreds of entries.
Maybe the best advice I can offer you is simply write another script. A mysterious rejection form letter and not knowing who read my script would leave me empty and wondering if it was even read at all.
Howeve, they are inundated with over nine thousand submissions. The top screenwriting competitions are a great way to gain much-needed exposure for beginning writers.
I am not only grateful to Page Awards for getting theses notes to me, but giving me a reader that not only critiqued my work with a light hearted strikes and comments, they included some positive remarks that helped me rewrite this script.
