EXPANDING UPDATES ON OUR NEW SYSTEM

The 2011 Champion Screenwriting Competition is up and running.  You can still enter via Withoutabox but you also have the option of using our own entry procedure.  We are also introducing the Champion Screenwriting Scene & Pitch Competition, which only accepts submissions through our system.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATES

The problems have been relatively few.  A few people are having problems with the check out cart "dropping" their products.  It's working better.  Hit "start over" when you begin and if for some reason, it won't let you pay, most likely your scripts were uploaded.  Email us and we can send you a PayPal invoice which can be paid with PP or any CC. 

GOOD NEWS!

Also, since the cart didn't allow for Champion Development Notes after-the-fact, we are going to announce that until the March 11 deadline, all feature writers can add Champion Development Notes and still be eligible for resubmission.  Email us and we will make it easy for you.

And f you are going to do multiple scenes, now is the time.  They are $10 apiece until the Early Bird Deadline.

    2011 Champion Competition - 72 Hours away!

    Hey Everyone,

    If some of you got the online Script Mag and went to the site, you will see we aren't up and running yet.

    We are going to launch in two-three days with a brand new look, some brand new categories and an entirely new contest that is going to run concurrently.  Get your screenplays, TV scripts, scenes and pitches ready.

    Oops, did I just give away some of the surprises.

    Stay tuned.

    Testimonial from the Grand Prize Winners

    After placing in the top twenty we were excited and after finding out that we  placed first in the competition, we we're absolutely thrilled! The class that followed was fantastic.  It helped fine tune our story and there is no doubt that we walked away with a much better script.  Winning also helped us get a  manager that we are currently working with.  Winning the Champion Screenwriting Competition really is just the beginning!
