Short Screenplay Competition

Visual Communications announces a screenplay competition -- co-presented with Mavericks of Asian Pacific Islander Descent -- to recognize talented screenwriters, and to provide screenwriters with an opportunity to compete against their peers and win valuable prizes.

With support from the Writers Guild of America, West, this competition will culminate at an Awards Ceremony during the 26th Annual Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival on May 6, 2010 at the Aratani Japan America Theatre. The top three finalists will be invited to this event, and the Grand Prize Winner will be announced.

All works will be adjudicated by a panel representing the Writers Guild of America, West; the Asian Pacific Islander filmmaking community; and the entertainment industry. Short works (not to exceed 15 pages) will be judged on originality, concept, pacing, tone, structure and theme. Screenplay must be the original work of the applicant(s) and must not have been optioned, sold, or produced prior to April 29, 2010.

Submit your work today! The deadline is March 22, 2010.
That doesn't leave you with a lot of time. You could win, among other goodies, a consultation with Oscar-winning filmmaker Chris Tashima, an Essentials Prize Package, a writer's photo session, and lots more.
