SCREENWRITERS: Don't Miss This Opportunity!
Have you entered The 2016 PAGE International Screenwriting Awards contest yet?
Our Final Entry Deadline is next Monday night, May 16 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, so you have just a few more days to get your script in the running for one of this year's awards!
If you're serious about your screenwriting career, let me tell you three reasons why I think this is such an important opportunity for you...
#1: TOP INDUSTRY JUDGES
Are you looking for ways to get your scripts into the hands of top producers, agents, managers, and development executives - the people who can actually help you get your movie or television show produced?
When you enter the PAGE Awards competition, right from the get-go, those are the exact people who are reading and evaluating your script.
In fact, the reason why so many Hollywood execs come asking to judge the PAGE Awards contest is because they're looking for new projects to produce and new writers to represent, and each year many of our winners and finalists are optioned and signed by producers and representatives who read their scripts during the contest judging process.
It's a serious "win-win"!
#2: HUGE PRIZES & GREAT ODDS
Come this fall, our Judges will present a total of 31 Awards to some of the most talented new screenwriters from across the country and around the world. Our winning writers will receive cash and prizes totaling over $50,000 - including our huge $25,000 Grand Prize - plus Gold, Silver & Bronze Prizes in each of our ten genre categories.
Plus, throughout the contest judging process, your script is only competing with other scripts in the exact same genre category. And because we present a total of 31 awards, your script has an excellent chance of winning (approximately 1 in 200).
In other words, we do everything possible to stack the odds in your favor!
#3: PROFESSIONAL RECOGNITION
Over the past decade, the PAGE Awards competition has become one of the most respected sources for new screenwriting talent in the world, and many of our past winners are now seeing their movies and television shows in production, on the air, and in theaters. Writers like like Bill Dubuque (THE JUDGE, THE ACCOUNTANT), John Scott III (MAGGIE, PARABLE X), Janet Lin (BONES, FOREVER), VJ Boyd (JUSTIFIED, THE JURY), Sang Kyu Kim (THE WALKING DEAD, WAYWARD PINES), and many, many more.
So, whether your goal is to sign with a top literary representative, land a paid writing assignment with a major Hollywood production company, get staffed on a hit TV series, or sell your screenplay and get your movie produced, entering the PAGE Awards competition could mark that turning point in your career, just like it has for so many other writers!
But remember, our Final Entry Deadline is this Monday night, May 16 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time, so if you haven't yet entered this year's contest, this is your very last chance!

It could prove to be a life-changing, career-making decision for you, just like it has been for so many of our past winners.
I do hope you'll choose to enter the 2016 PAGE Awards contest...
We'd love help launch your career!
