Default Other contests I should try this year?

Hi guys,

I've got the money to enter a couple more contests this year and was wondering if you guys could recommend the best ones in terms of prestige and opportunity to further one's career.

So far I've entered my action script into the Nichol and Page awards.

Are there any others you'd recommend (and can you give me the deadlines?)

Thanks everyone

Tracking B, I'm on my phone so not sure of the deadlines. Check out www.trackingb.com and click on 2011 contest to the right I believe.

The TrackingB contest is good, although it doesn't offer a cash prize. The first 1000 people to enter two scripts get a free 1-year subscription.

But if you were lucky enough to win or place in tracking b, what you get is potentially much better than the cash prizes of most contests, besides Page and Nicholl, and IF your script is really good, the odds are better because there are fewer entrants. The goal of entering a contest shouldn't be the cash prize. If you're looking for another good contest to enter anyway, you should definitely go for tracking b.

Can anyone tell me why the BlueCat is so highly regarded?

I read a TV winner of TrackingB from the other year and thought it was terrible writing. Make sure you have a good 'concept' for them, it's all that matters at the end of the day.
