2012 BlueCat Screenplay Competition Call for Entries! IP: 188.8.131.52 Posted on August 31, 2011 at 08:07:29 PM by bluecat
THE 2012 BLUECAT SCREENPLAY COMPETITION
*Submit Today and Receive Two Written Analyses by October 1st
*Every Screenplay Guaranteed Read by Two Readers
DOES BLUECAT DISCOVER SCREENWRITERS?
Since 1998, BlueCat winners and finalists have gone on to be signed by CAA, UTA, and WME, sell their screenplays to Sony, be produced by Universal, sell a pitch to Warner Bros, and win major awards at the Sundance, Berlin and Tribeca Film Festivals, all after being discovered by and winning BlueCat.
Our Winners have gone on to win Nicholl and Austin, as well as countless other screenplay competitions, having won none before entering BlueCat. Before BlueCat, these writers were unknown, and in most cases, BlueCat was the first recognition they received.
HOW DOES BLUECAT EVALUATE MY SCREENPLAY?
Every screenplay entered into the 2012 Competition receives two written analyses as part of their entry fee, and all screenplays are eligible to be resubmitted after receiving their notes.
The BlueCat Screenplay Competition guarantees what every screenwriter expects when they enter a contest: two independent readers reading their entire screenplay and writing analysis of it as a part of the entry fee.
"How great to get these analyses -- and from astute and careful readers. Their comments both encourage and challenge me to really examine how to make this script as good as it can be. Thanks again!"
Cornelia R., 2012 Entrant
"THANK YOU THANK YOU - this is so excellent! I really appreciate the feedback - very helpful and constructive. I have entered the contest before and applied the feedback - got reaffirmation that the advice I took had helped and looking forward to further developing - thank you so much!!"
Anne Marie D., 2012 Entrant
