The 2014 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting competition is now underway.  In November, as many as five $35,000 fellowships will be awarded.

The annual Fellowships competition is open to any individual who has not earned a total of more than $25,000 from the sale or option of screenplays or teleplays, or received fellowships or prizes of more than $25,000 that include a "first look" clause, an option or any other quid pro quo involving the writer's work. 

But the competition is steep -- last year drew a record 7,251 entries.

To enter, writers must submit a completed application online, upload one PDF copy of their original screenplay in English and pay the entry fee before the regular deadline at 5:00 p.m. PT on April 10, 2014.

Here’s how the entry fee schedule and deadlines break down:

       Early deadline:  5:00 p.m. PT, February 28; entry fee US$35

       Deadline:  5:00 p.m. PT, April 10; entry fee US$50

       Late deadline:  5:00 p.m. PT, May 1; entry fee US$65
