The 1st International Rioja Campus
Short Script Competition

Deadline Entry Fee
February 28, 2005 Free
Award: 1000 euros
Other Awards/Prizes: Second Prize: 500 euros
The objective of the competition is both to promote young talent writers and to establish a filming team at the University of La Rioja (Spain), which will own the rights of the winning and finalist scripts for the next two academic years. Either the winning script or the finalist, or both, will be directed and produced by ACAUR members. In the case that no script is deemed good enough by the judges of the competition, no prize will be awarded. Those scripts that are possible to produce on a low budget (i.e., without excessive means, special effects or locations) will be considered in the first place. The winning and finalist scripts will be susceptible of being re-elaborated as well as translated or subtitled in the video or film version.
