Entries are now being accepted in The 2009 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards competition.  This year the judges will be presenting over $50,000 in Cash & Prizes, including a huge new $25,000 Grand Prize!

Now in its sixth anniversary year, the PAGE Awards contest continues its track record of success: discovering and promoting some of the most talented new screenwriters from across the country and around the world. Since receiving their prizes, many PAGE Award winners have gone on to land writing assignments, secure representation, and sign option agreements on their winning scripts, and several now have movies in various stages of production and release.

In the latest news:

>>  The Irish adventure-fantasy script FAIRY CHILD, by 2008 Bronze Prize winner Eoin Rogers, is now in development with Cannon Production, Ireland, and NightSky Films, New York. Eoin has also been hired to write an action flick for director Dave Roddham, and he is working on a Celtic fantasy feature for BreakThru Films.

>> The 2008 PAGE Silver Prize winning drama FIREWORKS, by U.K. scribes Hannah Robinson and Jonathan R. Hall, has been optioned by Concept Entertainment and Hannah is contracted to direct. Hannah and Jonathan are now represented by Frank Wuliger at the Gersh Agency in L.A.

>> The supernatural thriller GOD SQUAD, by 2008 Bronze Prize winner Stephen Carter, has been optioned by director Matthiew Klinck. Stephen has been signed by Zero Gravity Management.
  
>> Sarah Knight of Jo Films has optioned SHADY CREEK, by 2007 Silver Prize winner Russell Gilwee, and the movie is now officially in pre-production. Russell has just been hired to write another script for Jo Films.

>> As a result of his 2007 PAGE win, Marc Conklin was signed by Beloved Management, and his Gold Prize winning comedy DEADBEAT BOYFRIENDS has now been optioned by L.A. producer James Rich, Jr.
  
>> 2005 Silver Prize winner Janet Lin is now a staff writer on the FOX TV series “Bones.” Her episode “The Skull in the Sculpture” aired November 5th.

>> And 2005 Bronze Prize winner Martin McSweeney was recently commissioned to write an episode of “Seacht II” for Sterling TV. The show will air on BBC-TV and TG4 in 2009.

This year, the judges will once again be presenting a total of 31 Awards in ten different genre categories. The winning screenwriters will receive over $50,000 in Cash & Prizes -- including a huge new $25,000 Grand Prize -- as well as extensive publicity and industry exposure for their winning scripts.

Most importantly, the PAGE Awards competition is judged entirely by working professionals in the film and television industry, so all contestants have the opportunity to get their scripts into the hands of Hollywood insiders currently in search of new talent.

I'm just curious...
Has anyone had their work make it past the initial first round?  I'd love to hear about your experience if so.  I'm also interested in hearing from those who've entered into the Nicholl's Fellowship as well.

I've reached the semis (2007) and the final (2008) with two different scripts.

I didn't ask (pay) for any feedback so obviously I didn't get any.

Over the past five years, the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards competition has earned a reputation for discovering and promoting some of the most talented new screenwriters from across the country and around the world. Since receiving their prizes, many PAGE Award winners have gone on to land writing assignments, secure representation, and sign option agreements on their winning scripts, and several now have movies and television shows in various stages of production and release.

In the latest news...

>>>  2006 PAGE Award winner Davah Avena is now a staff writer for the hit TV series “Medium.” Davah’s episode “How to Make a Killing in Big Business: Part 3” aired on NBC on Monday night.

>>>  The 2008 PAGE Silver Prize-winning short film A LOST AND FOUND BOX OF HUMAN SENSATION, by Martin Wallner, is being produced by Dancing Squirrel GbR and Lailaps Pictures at the Trixter production facilities in Munich, Germany. Joseph Fiennes is voicing the animated short.

>>>  The 2008 Gold Prize-winning sitcom pilot “Control Alt Delete,” by U.K. scribe Simeon Goulden, has been optioned by Company Pictures. Simeon is now represented by the Curtis Brown Agency in London.

>>>  2008 Silver Prize winners Michael and Jessica Brody have been signed by manager Margery Walshaw. Jessica's debut novel The Fidelity Files was released last year by St. Martin's Press and the book was recently optioned to Marina Grasic (executive producer of CRASH, ALPHA DOG, SMART PEOPLE).

>>>  2007 Silver Prize winner David Bishop recently completed his 40th issue of The Phantom comic book and celebrated the publication of his 19th novel. David's "Doctor Who" audio drama "Enemy of the Daleks" is scheduled to be released later this month. He also recently wrote a successful trial script for the BBC medical drama series "Doctors," and as a result was invited on to a BBC shadow scheme for emerging writers.

>>>  2006 Bronze Prize winner Zack Van Eyck has optioned his new screenplay ALLEY CATS to producer/director Patrick T. Brown of Bad Turtle Productions. Zack already has one completed movie under his belt, five features in development and pre-production, and six short scripts sold.

>>>  2008 Gold Prize winner Steve Warren has been hired by producer/director Mariusz Kotowski of Bright Shining City Productions to pen a new multi-episode TV series.

>>>  2007 Bronze Prize winner Ehud Lavski has been signed by Mike Goldberg and Josh Adler at Abstract Entertainment in L.A.

>>>  2005 Bronze Prize winner Dylan Costello has been signed by Gary Wild of Jill Foster, Ltd. in London.

Read all the latest news from our past winners at: http://www.pageawards.com. And remember, in a few short months, your name could be on that list!

We're very proud that so many of our past contestants are now realizing their dreams, and we’re very happy that we’ve been able to encourage and assist in their success. And of course, we’re very excited about this year’s Sixth Anniversary competition!

If you've already entered this year's contest, thank you very much! We're hearing some great reviews back from the judges, and many of your scripts are already generating some real "buzz" here at PAGE H.Q. This is clearly going to be a phenomenal year.

For those of you who haven’t yet entered, I want to remind you that the Final Entry Deadline for the 2009 PAGE Awards competition is this Friday, May 15th at Midnight Pacific Time.

Please Note: We always want to allow you as much time as possible to enter the contest, and we want our judges to have the opportunity to review as many good scripts as possible, so in the past we've accepted entries through the end of May. However, this year, because we've added an additional round of competition and because we're always committed to making our announcement dates as scheduled, we need to post an earlier deadline in order to give the judges enough time to evaluate your scripts. So May 15th will be your very last chance to enter this year's contest.

On October 1st, our judges will once again be presenting 31 awards in ten different genre categories. The winning screenwriters will receive a total of over $50,000 in Cash and Prizes – including our huge new $25,000 Grand Prize – as well as extensive publicity and industry exposure for their winning scripts.

Most importantly, the PAGE Awards competition is judged entirely by working professionals in the film and television industry, so all contestants have the opportunity to get their work into the hands of Hollywood insiders currently in search of new talent.
