Circalit Screenwriting Competition

Because the contest organizers asked that I pass this on (and because I don't have anything to post today):

I thought readers of your blog might be interested in hearing about a free Circalit-hosted monthly screenwriting competition in connection with the BBC, Hollywood producer Julie Richardson, and a number of other industry professionals. Please see the details below. We've also prepared a short guide for writers to learn the best ways of protecting their screenplay from copyright infringement which you might be interested in having a look at here. Do let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,


The BBC and Hollywood Producers to Judge Monthly Screenwriting Competition on Circalit.

Screenwriters across the globe are posting their scripts up at where BBC and Hollywood producers are now reviewing winning scripts with a view to production. The competition takes place monthly and is divided into television scripts, feature length screenplays and shorts. The winning scripts are decided every month by public vote and are then sent to BBC and Hollywood producers to be reviewed and potentially produced. The BBC will be reviewing the winning television script each month, whilst Julie Richardson, managing member of Imaginarium Entertainment Group and best known as the producer of box office hit “Collateral” will be reviewing the winning short (any screenplay under 60 pages). Meanwhile, feature length screenplays are being judged by Hollywood scriptwriter, Tom Lazarus, and Europe’s premier script development organisation, The Script Factory, in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox, Columbia and a host of other major production studios.

Tom Lazarus, screenwriter and director, author of nine produced features, Master Class instructor at UCLA Extension Writer's Program and International Film Consultant, commented, "Circalit is a welcome addition to screenwriting community and a good place for writers to network and make industry contacts."

Briony Hanson, Co-Director of The Script Factory, commented, "We're very excited by Circalit's project to offer writers the chance to find support for their screenplays. The site is clear, user-friendly and it seems like only a matter of time before Circalit becomes known as one of the essential places for the industry to look for new screenwriting talent and we're happy to be working with them to help screenwriters."
