Nevada Film Office Screenwriters Competition

Deadline Entry Fee
June 30, 2006 $30 ($15 for Nevada Residents)
Award: 3 top prizes including cash, gifts, press event & luncheon, script distribution to producers
Other Awards/Prizes: Prizes include cash awards, software, movie related items such as books or memorabilia, an awards press event and luncheon with the State's Lieutenant Governor hosting, and BEST OF ALL, at our expense we copy and distribute the top 3 winning scripts to Hollywood producers and production companies willing to consider them.
The NFO competition seeks to provide unsold writers an opportunity for recognition and networking with the Hollywood market, and to encourage the creation of scripts specific to Nevada. The small size of the competition improves a writer's chances of finishing well, and judges usually provide helpful notes and useful criticism. All genres are welcome except pornography which is excluded. Drama, comedy, sci fi, westerns, historical, fantasy, action, adventure, heists, road movies, thrillers, and more have all won and/or placed well over the years.
Notification Date:  January 2006
Eligibility: For Unsold and Unoptioned writers only
Rules:  Industry standard format scripts, NO pornography is allowed; Scripts must be between 90 and 130 pages, industry standard format, 3 hole punched with 2 or 3 metal fasteners (brads); TITLE ONLY on card stock cover, cardstock back, with removable inside title page that has all contact information for writer; signed release required for EACH script submitted (get from website);75% of locations must be set in/shootable in Nevada (locations can be "generic" such as desert, mountains, valleys, prairies, small towns, farmlands, wilderness, etc., or scripts can be specific such as Las Vegas, Reno, Elko, Laughlin, etc.); Writers should NOT specify more than 25% non Nevada cities, other states, countries, locales, thinking Judges will "use their imagination" to substitute Nevada; they will not and script will be DQ'd.
