WeScreenplay Names Contest Winners

Kenlon Clark & William Rubio have been named the Grand Prize Winners of the WeScreenplay Screenwriting Contest for their script, Forged. Novelist Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game) was named the second place winner of the blindly-judged competition for his screenplay MESA 1966, along with Paul Gross for his script about Beethoven, Diminuendo. This year's WeScreenplay Competition attracted almost 1,000 submissions.

Grand Prize Winner
FORGED by Kenlon Clark & William Rubio

2nd Place Winner
MESA 1966 by Orson Scott Card

3rd Place Winner
THE LAST EXECUTION by Tom Vecchio
Dubbed the "mother-in-law from hell," Elizabeth "Ma" Duncan was the last woman executed in California for having her despised daughter-in-law murdered in 1958 because of an uncomfortably close relationship with her attorney son and her fear of being abandoned and alone in old age.

4th Place Winner
THE LEAN by Pearse Lehane
A disgraced lawyer must prevent an innocent man from being convicted of the murder of a police officer in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

5th Place Winner
