Additional information on "Screenplay Competitions: Starter Templates" by Ann Marie Williams

Bluestocking Press exclusive!

Now, as a Bluestocking Press exclusive, you can purchase the Screenplay Competitions: Starter Templates which includes three starter templates designed by Ann Marie Williams and based on the templates she presents in her book Screenplay Competitions: Tools and Insights to Help You Choose the Best Screenwriting Contests for You and Your Script.

Each template serves a different purpose in aiding screenwriters as they research and enter screenplay contests. And while the starter templates are ready for use, customization to fit your needs is recommended.


The Screenplay Competitions: Starter Templates includes one each of the following:

The Competition Template
The Competition Round Template
The Submission Template

The Competition Template and The Competition Round Template are meant to be used as the screenwriter researches screenwriting competitions (and later, for the competitions the writer enters, to help the screenwriter understand exactly how far his/her script advanced in the competition and the judging process it took to do so).

The Competition Template should be completed per competition (or per genre and/or format per competition). This template is designed to help the screenwriter understand a screenplay competition's entire competition process (from the type of scripts accepted, to how judge's rank and advance scripts, to the types of awards and prizes offered).  By understanding a competition's entire process, the screenwriter should be better equipped to determine which competitions are a good fit for him/her and his/her script.

The Competition Round Template should be completed per round, per competition.  Completing this template should help the screenwriter understand a competition's judging, ranking, and advancement process for every step of the competition—if the competition provides enough detailed information to complete the template.  By understanding recording the information that is (or is not) provided by the competition, the screenwriter should have a better idea of which competitions are a good fit for him/her (as well as his/her specific script).  Moreover, for the competitions that the screenwriter does decide to enter, The Competition Round Template will help the screenwriter better determine how far his/her script actually advanced in the competition and the judging ranking and advancement process it took to do so.

The Submission Template is meant to be used during the screenplay competition submission process to help the screenwriter:

•Keep track of competition entry details and requirements to make the submission process easier

•Maintain a record of competition entries and the corresponding results (once received)

•Maintain a record of competition entries and the corresponding critiques (if applicable)

•Maintain clear and consistent records of entries and results for easy future reference

Submission Template should be completed per calendar year and/or per year per script (as opposed to per competition) as it makes it easier to see, at a glance, which competitions the screenwriter has entered, the competitions the screenwriter still needs to enter, and the competition results. Moreover, if the screenwriter ever wants to review his/her results in the future (either to see how a script ranked and/or so to reference a placement in a pitch or query letter), then Submission Template makes that process easier.

ENDORSEMENTS FOR SCREENPLAY COMPETITIONS

"An in-depth and specific guide to how screenwriting contests operate."

—Dave Trottier
Author, The Screenwriter’s Bible
www.keepwriting.com

 

"Writing for the screen is a fiercely competitive enterprise. In recent years, dramatic writing competitions have exploded. They represent a new and effective tool to win the attention of agents and producers. But how do you know which contests are legitimate? How does a writer determine whether or not a particular offering merits its entry fee? With her hands-on, nuts-and-bolts, information-packed volume, treating an oft-neglected aspect offering strategies to launch writing careers, Ann Marie Williams provides a welcome new addition to the literature."

—Professor Richard Walter
former Screenwriting Area Head, Associate and Interim Dean
UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television

 

"While running a competition has become second nature for me, Ann Williams’ book surprised and delighted me with her acuity on this side of the film industry which is not explored nearly enough. I was amazed with the depth in which she pulls back the curtain and sieves through everything from preparing your script for submission to what judges look for in scripts. Screenplay competitions have always been a valuable opportunity for aspiring writers and Screenplay Competitions should be required reading for any prospective entrant wanting to seize their moment. I highly recommend reading this before clicking SUBMIT."

—Matt Dy
Director of Script Competitions
Austin Film Festival

 

"Screenplay Competitions is a strikingly thorough guide for anyone interested in pursuing a career in screenwriting. Ann Williams’ comprehensive work answers any possible question one might have about the business and creative aspects of screenwriting competitions. Her colloquial style and tales of her own journey through the competitive process gives the reader a sense you are hearing from a good friend who just happens to be an expert in the field. Very readable and utterly informative."

—Professor Harry M. Cheney
Chapman University
Dodge College of Film and Media Arts

 

"[Screenplay Competitions] is a great book that is so in depth and provides a lot of guidance. For someone who has never personally entered a screenplay competition, I feel that I would be pretty well prepared to enter one after having read it."

—Taylor Braun
Film Festival Specialist
Chapman University
Dodge College of Film and Media Arts
