I don't see anything about the Nicholl on the competition board so here it is. Anyone still in the running this year?. Or has anyone ever placed/got near? And if so did it get you any industry attention?

Cheers,

Alex

Commiserations in this oh so subjective game. I'm still in the running at semi-stage. Got to the quarters before but no love came from it. Pre-empting failiure to reach the finals i was wondering if anyone has experience of queries/offers from semifinal round?

If not i'll wait. If you're not good at waiting, don't start screenwriting i say.

Hi, mate... well done. Have you checked their website? I don't enter comps anymore and have never entered the Nicholl, but I imagine they will brag about their successes somewhere on the website.

Cheers! Yeh they brag about notable fellows but nothing about semi-finalists. Just a wait and see job I suspect. Like most things.

*Edit: I meant wait - while you write a fuck-bomb-load more stuff - and see.

Wow - great news. I made the quarters one year and got emails from 3 or 4 agents after the contest was over - think this bodes well for you. Congrats!

Thanks! Like I said I made the quarters once and got sweet FA. But that was a thriller about child abuse. The controversy probably put people off. Luckily this one is about abortion ...

What did the agents do? Ask to look at other scripts you had? Could you answer what agencies they were from.

Congratulations on making it that far. This is my first year entering any contests and I made the QF's with a comedy. Right now I'm busy tightening up other scripts and creating more to build my portfolio. You guys have any advice or tips?

Google the judging criteria. They're all different but for the Nicholl the basic gist is - fuck commerciality - they want originality, slick writing and a kickass plot. Hence why my risque subject matter still went far. Having said that it must have some commercial appeal as it's since been optioned. But not due to the competition.

They ask me to complete a release form and submit the script.

The three I remember were Benderspink, Waterman and someone associated with Marvel.

Congratulations, that's awesome. Was that from this years comp? How far did you make it in Nicholl's?

Nothing came of it? Did they want to read any other of your scripts? Just curious.

I attended an agent's class over the weekend as part of the London Screenwriting festival. They said they look at writers who come out of the Nicholl's Fellowship but they didn't say what stage.

Semi-Finalist in this year's  SCRIPTAPALOOZA feature contest.  Not Nicholl's but I believe it's considered one of the top 10 contests.  Did not submit to Nicholl's.

Semi-Finalist  =  Top 100 scripts out of 3,462 submitted.   They promote your screenplay to producers, managers and agents for one year.

If anything develops I'll  forward.

I made it to the semis. But the option was unrelated. They haven't even published the semi finalist list yet.

Congrats Jake, kep us updated.

A top management company requested my script last week. @ELdave1, AlexW or anyone else how long did it take any agency/company to get back to you? I know they are busy and have their own established clients to worry about.
