Potential Oscar Nomination for Champion Winner

FROM NICK KELLY, WINNER OF SECOND PLACE IN SHORTS CATEGORY FROM LAST YEAR


Dear Jim

Just wanted to let you know that, to my surprise and delight, the finished film of "Shoe" (which won second prize in your last Champion Screenwriting Competition) has been shortlisted for an Oscar in the Live Action Shorts Category.  (We find out on January 25th if we make the final nominees - fingers crossed.)

Your early recognition of the script was a big step for me in getting the film made, so I just wanted to express my appreciation once more.

Very best

Nick Kelly
Writer / Director

CONGRATS, NICK!
