Scriptwriting

Proof-reading your screenplay? The deadline for the Academy's 2012 Nicholl Screenwriting Competition is approaching. Last year the competition drew a record 6,720 entries. Since the inception of the award in 1985, over 123 fellowships have been awarded. The Academy presents up to five $35,000 fellowships each year.

The Nicholl competition welcomes any individuals who have not yet earned more than $5,000 from a screenplay, or a fellowship or prize of more than $5,000 that includes a "first look" clause.

The early bird deadline is Friday, March 15, with the regular deadline following on May 1.  Entry scripts must be original, feature length, in English, and the product of a sole author or two collaborative authors.  Adaptations and translated scripts are not eligible.
