The deadline for 100 Screenplays is April 1 at Midnight! (That is midnight in Los Angeles, California.)
We would like to thank all of the screenwriters who have already entered their scripts, and let everyone else know that there are spaces left but normally that last week is pretty busy.
We freeze the entry systems if/when we reach 100, so that you do not have to worry about paying the entry fee and not making it into the contest. If the sites let you in, you are IN.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2016 competition! We would like to thank everyone who entered the contest, and will be doing all that we can to help the three winners to get their scripts into the right hands!
First Prize – Square One by Madison Roberts
In his mid-40’s, everyone’s best friend and dedicated high-school history teacher Dave realizes that he has been living a lie, and has to come out as homosexual to his wife, his two teens, his parents, his co-workers, and his students, but he soon learns person in his life who deals with his truth the worst is himself.
Second Prize – A Man Called White by Randy Hines
A black man who can pass for white struggles to defeat the specter of lynching in the 1930s as he takes the reins of the nascent NAACP.
Third Prize – A Royal Appointment by Mark J. Gossin

We wanted to let all of our writers know that the judges are reading their scripts and we expect to have the Winners announced one month after our final deadline, Friday, May 6.
Best of luck to everybody!
