Interest-finder website StumbleUpon is launching a contest: the winner will get a first-look option with Hollywood producers. Most types of written media are fair game -- screenplays, short stories, novels, comic series, essays -- and the site's community of 25 million members will vote on the top 10.

After ten works have made the shortlist, a panel of three Hollywood talent agents and script doctors will judge the material and pick a grand winner.

The concept of the contest (finding talent that might otherwise be little-known or completely undiscovered) fits the mission of StumbleUpon, which is to help members discover websites personalized to their interests.

The submission deadline is July 24, and complete rules can be found here.
