Look for the most important competitions for scripts in general. They sometimes have a category for shorts.

I like the writersandfilmmakers-concept a lot - movie makers evaluate the scripts and the other way around. Winners move on and the script is shot. Brilliant.

Thanks Filman!

The concept is the strength! We've been working really hard on all the coding and it leaves us little time to 'advertise'. Which, you can imagine we all hate to do. Necessary evil... ugh.

I can't wait to get this baby started! It would a dream to help out skilled filmmakers and writers produce something, not just win an award!

Yeah, also the prices are strong, $35,000 for nicholls, $10,000 for bluecat and similar prices for the others... but the most useful is that big people in movie insustry are cooperate especially with nichols and austin (2 first).
