It’s not easy getting your screenplay read by an industry professional. So, I have entered four screenplays in several different awards contests via the Screenplay Awards Network. Every entry includes some level of analysis. By entering these contests, my screenplays will get seen and read by someone. Since entering, I have received quite a bit of analysis on the four screenplays. Valuable analysis. Using this analysis, I’ve been able to start fine tuning aspects of my writing.
I have also received some positive feedback in the form of advancing to the next round of a contest. Bone Creek and Craps, You Lose have both advanced to the Feature Quarter Finals of the Portland Screenplay Awards. In the Reno-Tahoe Screenplay Contest, Bone Creek and Burn have advanced the the Quarter Finals in the feature category, while Up Close And Personal has advanced the the Quarter Finals shorts category.
What is most exciting to me is that Bone Creek has now received two advancements. While I know I still have a lot of work to do and improvement to my writing, I know I’m headed in the right direction. I can’t wait to find out if I have further advancements in these, or other awards contests.
