The UCLA Extension Screenplay Competition is a fresh and exclusive opportunity for three outstanding Writers’ Program students to gain industry exposure, individual mentoring and training, and cash prizes.
Notification Date:  June 2008.

Eligibility: 3 feature film courses in the Writers' Program within specified time limit. Scripts have been developed in a Writers' Program course. Original material.

Complete the application and verification forms and mail them along with the entry fee and two copies of your script to UCLA Extension Screenplay Competition, c/o UCLA Extension Writers’ Program, 10995 Le Conte Ave, Room 440, Los Angeles, CA 90024. Entries must be received by Thursday, March 27th, 2008 at 4 PM, PST. Online submissions are not acceptable. Only completed applications received on or before the deadline will be considered.

All entries must be accompanied by a verification form, signed by your instructor, to verify that your script was developed in a Writers’ Program course. Writers’ Program staff cannot be responsible for facilitating an instructor’s signature on the verification form. If your attempts to notify an instructor are unsuccessful, you may mail the verification form – along with a self-addressed stamped envelope – to your instructor in care of the Writers’ Program and we will forward it. Entries without a completed verification form by the application deadline cannot be considered, so be sure to get started on this early.

Each screenplay must be accompanied by a $45 nonrefundable entry fee ($25 for students enrolled in the Certificate Program in Feature Film Writing between March 2006 and March 2008. Certificate student status will be verified.) Checks should be made payable to “UC Regents”.

Your name should not appear on the cover, title page, or any other page of the script. Please use the last four digits of your social security number on the title page for identification.

Screenplays must be in English, printed single-sided on three-hole white paper and fastened with brads. Each page should be numbered and should total 90-140 pages. Scripts should be submitted in standard spec format in 12-point font (Courier or Times New Roman preferred).

Scripts cannot be returned.
