      This is its first year. I ran Expo Competition for first 5-6 years and helped The Script Department start Silver Screenwriting last year. Silver is all them now. This is my contest.

      I have helped several writers from the Expo contest get writing gigs over the years - Naida, Nathan, Bill, etc....

        If you win, the money's good. Don't expect much else though.
        I'm not trying to diss you here, congrats on the top 10, but do any contests (excluding the Nicholl's) get read requests for anything less than being a winner?

        It seems like they've got plenty of success stories for the winners. Of course with any contest it's hard to tell if the success came via the contest, or happened independently.
