MONTEREY COUNTY FILM COMMISSION ANNOUNCES "HOLLYWOOD CONNECTION 2003" SCREENWRITING CONTEST

MONTEREY, CA -- A $2,003 top prize and valuable Hollywood contacts are being offered in the Monterey County Film Commission's seventh annual screenwriting contest. The contest's final entry deadline is Dec. 31, 2002. 

The contest offers other prizes, too, from screenwriting software to tuition to Screenwriting Day in Monterey where winners have a chance to hone their writing skills by attending seminars and visiting with the judges. A $1000 prize will also be presented to the top screenplay featuring 50% or more of Monterey County locations.

The Monterey County Film Commission screenwriting contest is a smaller one that encourages and promotes new screenwriters to Hollywood. The screenplays must not have been optioned or sold at the time of submission.

"Our smaller contest means a better chance of getting recognition for screenwriting excellence," said Karen Nordstrand, marketing director of the Monterey County Film Commission. "It's important for writers to get their work read and we make every effort to provide comments from our readers in hopes that they will be helpful to aspiring screenwriters." 

The final selections in the contest will be judged by nationally recognized jury of producers, agents and writers. Winners who attend the annual screenwriting day on May 31, 2003, get to meet industry insiders, receive personal script consultations and benefit from publicity within the film industry. 

Submissions must be full-length film or television movie scripts between 90 and 120 pages in length. Entry fee is $45 per script for early entries postmarked by Nov. 30, 2002 and $55 for scripts postmarked by the final deadline of Dec. 31, 2002. 

There are also discounts for multiple script submissions. Applicants are urged to submit their screenplays early since the contest is limited to the first 500 screenplays received. 

Complete rules and a submission form may be downloaded from the film commission website at www.filmmonterey.org 

The Monterey County Film Commission is a non-profit organization working to bring film projects to local sites and provide supporting educational opportunities related to the film industry. For further information, call the commission at (831) 646-0910.
