Default Nicholl Fellowship 2012 open for submissions

Good luck everyone!!

http://www.oscars.org/awards/nicholl/apply.html


Changes:

1) All first round scripts will be read by two different readers this year before it's determined if they move forward. So no one will get kicked out by an initial read.
2) The awarded Fellowships are 35k rather than 30k.

Both changes are pretty great. I guess I picked a good year to enter.

Four additional changes:

The early deadline has been moved up to March 15 (the regular deadline remains May 1).

Early entry fee is now $35.

Regular entry fee is now $52.

We have rewritten the collaboration rule slightly in order to make clear that collaborations must be equal partnerships from the start to finish of a script. In other words, both writers must create the story and the screenplay together.

Fantastic change!

The Nicholl is, as ever, the best run and undisputed king of contests.

Love that scripts now have to be read twice in the first round. Awesome change, Greg!

Great. Just what I need on my conscience: two people who will go blind by gouging out their eyes after reading my script.

Another change (or clarification): people who won more than $5K on Amazon Studios aren't eligible for the Nicholl.
