As most of you no doubt know, several of the big name contests do not give their big prizes to genre scripts.  Does anybody have a recommendations for prestigious contests that have opened doors for horror/thriller scripts?

Thanks,
Ray

Hey Ray,

Check out MovieBytes for info on contests. I believe Shriekfest might be what you're looking for.

Shriekfest is probably the biggest one out there.  The Erie Horror Film Festival is another.  Usually these competitions have their final deadlines in June por July as the festivals surround Halloween.

Thanks for the feedback!  Also, does anybody know of any general fests that have proven friendly to genre material?  I'm thinking about the Script Pimps or Scriptapaloozas out there.

I had a really good experience with the Straight Twisted Horror Screenplay Contest (I was a semi-finalist), and I know another writer on this forum who took home third place in the Terror Film Festival.
