    Everyone I've met who's been a 2nd rounder either has already had a feature made, is a published writer or works in TV. Semifinalists usually seem to have worked professionally in TV or whatever-- last year at the awards luncheon I sat at a table with a Nicholl Fellow and TV veteran who had made feature film. They didn't win.

    It's a pretty big deal contest. Good luck!

    Does anyone know of a site where we can read an Austin teleplay winner?

    Yes there should be a confirmation email -- check your junk mail box, that's where mine came in.

    It sounds like they didn't sanitize their database inputs:

    Pretty vague criteria...

    "The Screenplay/Teleplay Competition is open only to writers who do not earn a living writing for television or film."

    That doesn't sound right but I may certainly be wrong. It has always been my impression that Nicholl's was a much more difficult competition to place highly in. In fact, as I said, I have a screenplay that has quartered three times at Austin, but can't quarter anywhere else. And it is indeed my fifth best screenplay. Again, I might very well be wrong, but that has always been my impression that Nicholl was much more compeitive than Austin.

    I don't necessarily have a problem submitting scripts to Austin, but I do have a comment about their competition. And I wonder if anyone else might have had the same experience.


    It seems they are looking for something very different than other competitions. On the one hand, I have screenplays that have quarter and semi-finalled in many competitions, including Nicholls, which can't make a dent in Austin. On the other hand, I have a screenplay that can't make a dent in Nicholl's, but which has quarterfinalled three times in Austin.


    Anyone else notice anything similar?

    I had no problems also using Firefox 3.5.9. A SQL error sounds more like a back end server error, so maybe it was a temporary glitch in the Matrix.
