    2008 Movie Script Contest Feature Contest Announces Finalists

    Thanks to all who entered and congratulations to those who made the
    finals. Yet even making the semifinals is a significant achievement. This
    year has been notable in the increased quality of material submitted in
    all genre categories, making judging a more crucial and lengthier process
    than ever before. On behalf of Movie Script Contest, and the judges, I
    want to again, say thank you for entering and for providing us the
    opportunity to read your stories. It has been a rewarding experience to
    say the least.

    My friend is on this list. Comedy. He just told me.

    I don't know anything about this contest. How does it rank?

    Anyone know when winners are announced?

    At least he has something for his query letter...

      I recognize DD members The Brothers Langlais on there. Congrats, guys!

      Also, congrats to that Michael Raymond guy with a script in the finals in every damn category. Wow.

        looks like the contest has expanded quite a bit since last year--and now has winners for specific genres. I placed last year and was really impressed with how Jason Zimmatore handled the notifications, prizes, etc. The communication between him and the contestants was better than any other contest I've entered. The contest also gave feedback on each script last year, I think that was at an extra charge this time around.

        I would think it's not a super high ranking contest since it's pretty new, but all signs point to it gaining popularity and street cred.
        congrats to all the finalists!
