    Re: Final Draft Big Break Opens Today

    I always have trouble deciding which categories to put my scripts into in these contests. I have a Western, which is also naturally an Action/Adventure, so do I put it in Action/Adventure or do I go with Period/Historical? I have another script that I would call a Sci-fi Comedy, so do I go with Sci-fi or Comedy?

      The definition I just read for comedy said every scene should be comedic to qualify for the Comedy genre, so the degree of comedy you have in your script might answer the Sci-Fi or Comedy question. As for the other, it seems like they should have a Western category since that's a genre of its own, but if they don't, I think I'd go with Period/Historical.

      Edit: Okay, I have to correct myself. For Action Adventure, Page says: All types of action scripts, war stories, westerns, and adventure tales.

      I have a similar problem. I have a Coming-of-Age script that I would put in Family except there's a crucial underlying issue that comes to the surface at the end that wouldn't be appropriate for younger children, although I'm fine if there's a Coming-of-Age genre.
