Topic: Entering the same screenplay in different competitions?

Author: Francis Neumann Posted: 10/13/09 12:12 AM

Do you do that often, or you rather write a new one for a new competition?

Just wondering, i'm new. And hi all.

I think we have all entered our screenplays multiple times.

As many as you want to pay for.

I have entered multiple scripts in multiple contests. It adds up fast.

Suggest you get pro coverage (Script Department is a good place). If you have $1000 to spend on 20 contests, better to spend half of that going through 2 or 3 rewrites with pro coverage along the way. Then select the contests that generate script reads (read the thread here on that topic).
