For once I got organised enough to get the early entry fee...maybe because I did so badly in the first heat of the flash fiction challenge this year!!!

I've been doing the short screenplay every year since 2010 (it's my favourite of all the NYCM comps).

Who is in this year? Introduce yourself....

Me!!! I'm signing up. I've done the Short story, the screenplay and just finished ch2 of the FF.
May as well keep going. I'll be more comfy with the screenplay thing this time, pretty much enjoyed it last time which was my first screenplay ever.

Time to read some previous entries. Big smile

Welcome Kitt. There's a few of us here that do the prose and screenwriting challenges, so you'll be in good company.

I just entered. I've never written a screenplay before (although I did take a Gotham Writer's Workshop in dialogue a few years ago), so I entered mainly as a way to learn how to do it. I plan to make good use of the forums in this one, to gather as much feedback as I can. My goal is not to win, but learn. Really excited about it!

I'll be in it. I was in the last script challenge, made it to the final 40 in round three and unfortunately got a horrible bout of the flu on the day of the final challenge which wrecked me. So i'm keen for another go!

I signed up for it shortly after Flash Fiction challenge 1, since I really enjoyed it. I don't have as much experience writing screenplays but I did take some classes in screenwriting several years ago, so this seemed like a good way to get back into it.

Welcome all - I always find the screenplay community is really helpful here - but without the cheesy cliques and nepotism that fills some of the prose forums...

I'm seriously considering it, but I don't even know what a screenplay looks like. I've thought about it before though, so maybe now's the time to learn?
