Oy the waiting

I posted last month that my screenplay had made the top 25% cut in the 2010 Page International Screenwriting Awards Contest.

I was pretty excited about that.

So, not sure why I neglected to post that – the script has since made Quarterfinals – the top 10% of 4412 scripts entered. Yay!

So —

The next cut – Semi-finalists (top 25 scripts in each genre)  – will be announced on August 15th.  

I was okay not thinking about it – until I have been getting reminders all this week.

“12 days.”



Time to focus on something else.

Like shoe shopping maybe?

Or should I buy one of these?


The Page International Screenplay Contest email – yay!

I received a fantastic email yesterday from the Page Awards!

“Dear Michele,

2010 marks the 7th anniversary of The PAGE International Screenwriting Awards, and this is shaping to be our strongest and most competitive year ever! We received 4,412 scripts this year, submitted by writers from all across the United States and around the world, and our Judges are telling us that the overall quality of this year’s entries is the best they’ve ever seen. So the next few months promise to be very exciting!

Today we’re officially kicking off The 2010 PAGE Awards announcement season, and we have some very good news for you…

The Judges have finished evaluating all the scripts in the First Round of competition, and they have advanced the top 25% of all entries into the Second Round. Based on your First Round scores, we’re very happy to inform you that you are now in the Second Round of competition.

Congratulations!! Given the caliber of competition you faced, this is a real achievement.”

Man, that made my day!

It also made my day that my fellow screenwriter friends in Max Adams’ 5150 International Screenwriting Workshop – Nancy, Christie, and Jos – are in the top 25% with me! Yay!

5150 – rocks!

Next round (quarterfinal) announcements are on July 15. Here’s hoping!

5150 rocks!

movie filmNews from the screenwriting front.

My screenplay made top 25% in the Page International Screenplay competition, with over 4300 entries, and scored 53/60 in the Script Savvy Competition.

And two amazing screenwriters in the 5150 screenwriting workshop, led by screenwriter Max Adams, also took contest hits – yay!   Nancy Bilyeau made Page quarterfinalists, Julie Howe made Bluecat quarterfinalists!

5150 so rocks!!!!
