Becky, "you got this". I can't see who won in 2018, but if the previous years are anything to go by, we need a woman on the list of (past) winners Big smile A space with your name on it??

Loving the parentheses ahaa. Don't know how you keep track of two accounts! 

Honestly, the calibre is always so high and I'm yet to handle the pressure of the later rounds, so I won't presume to make it to the final at all! But yes, 2019 is the year that we women achieve world domination, one NYC comp at a time LOL

I'll join in on the women's side Wink I was somewhere waaayyyy down the line on honorable mentions last year, hoping to do a bit better this year! After short screenplay, I'm excited at the prospect of having so many more pages and so much time again.

Oh, great.  It's a good 'ol girls club is it?  Us men are supposed to look good while we type your memos?  Fetch your coffee?  Answer the phones and pick up your laundry while you sit in the board rooms making deals and splitting the world up between you?

Some day things will change, you know!  You've been objectifying us long enough!  I am man, hear me bellow!

I think I will try this. Screenwriting is by a landslide the hardest kind of writing I have done. But it really made me think visually and improved my ability to write dialogue. So even if I go out after the first round, I think I will do this for the learning experience!

I just went through all three master lists and thanked Suave for every post he made.  That had an effect on his point count!  Big smile

If Pelosi steals your tax refund let me know.  My buddy Donald will take care of it for you.

Got to Round 3 in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Got Honorable Mention in the 2016 competition. Had to sit out in 2018, so I'm ready to come back and place with the winners this time. Hey, I can dream, can't I?

Officially registered!! My goal for this year is to actually reach 12 pages. This will be my fourth attempt. And I have never hit that 12th page.

2019: TBD
2018: Historical Fiction (10 pages) - Got an HM for this one! :)
2017: Fantasy (5.5 pages) - This one was absolute torture.
2016: Horror (10.5 pages) - My first attempt at writing a screenplay EVER.

I have a question:  Last year was my first time ever, and they posted the results with their loglines.  So we could get a flavour of those that didn't join the forum...  But they didn't do that for short screenplay competition.  Do you think they've given up because there are too many entrants?  Anyone have any knowledge about this?!

If I had to guess...I would say it's because the two contests have different formats for Round 1. The Screenwriting contest gives 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th... while Short Screenplay gives points to the top 15 scripts. So there's just too many loglines to list! :p

So. Madly, I just signed up for it. It starts at 5am the morning after I get home from a work trip. I start travelling on 24th March, so.... I'll be exhausted!! I'll probably contemplate the prompts while lying on a foam roller on the living-room floor LOL I'll be in far more need of exercise than hours of sitting at my computer BUT tis done. My first Screenplay comp. The current Short Screenplay comp produced my first ever screenplays (as FMau), and I really enjoyed it, so we'll see how the longer format works out.
