We are fans of screenwriting contests and excited to have Steven DeBose @Steven_DeBose
, Director of Script Competitions at Austin Film Festival @austinfilmfest
as our guest on #scriptchat Sunday, June 30th!
Did you know AFF has new contests? They're extending the deadline to July 5th
so our #scriptchat writers can participate!
Check them out:
Fiction Podcast Script Competition:
"We’re thrilled for the return of the Fiction Podcast Script Competition, which leverages our legacy of championing storytelling to launch writers into the emerging world of podcasts. We look forward to connecting audiences with incredible new stories, as well as connecting writers with a medium that offers incredible access to audiences and limitless opportunities to launch new stories."
Digital Series Competition:
"The climate of storytelling is changing. Scripts are no longer bound to the confines of a feature length movie or 42 minute television episode. With the emergence of online content platforms, digital series, webisodes, and everything else you can find on the world wide web, barriers have been broken and the doors are wide open for new media and innovative formats. And with more opportunity comes more talent and more stories ready to be celebrated."
