Screenwriting Fellowship

Standard

Here’s something for screenwriters.

Each year, the Academy ( as in the folks who sponsor the Oscars ) Nicholl screenwriting competition awards up to five $35,000 fellowships to amateur screenwriters. To enter, submit a feature-length screenplay and entry fee via the online application. Fellowship winners are invited to take part in awards week ceremonies and seminars and expected to complete at least one original feature film screenplay during the Fellowship year so this one is for older writers but I will be posting information for young screenwriters/filmmakers.

Now, although this is not specifically for teens but Nicki Reed wrote her first screenplay  for the movie Thirteen when she was only thirteen and she even starred in the film.

The online application form must be completed and a PDF version of the script uploaded by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on May 1.
