Measure by measure

Happy to find a congratulatory e-mail in my inbox today from Julie Gray. My rom-com is through to the next round of the Silver Screenwriting Competition. One of about 120 other quarterfinalists. I believe that represents 20% of the 600(ish) total entries. For a contest that bestows a cash prize, drinks at Chateau Marmont, meetings with three managers (plus an Academy Award-nominated screenwriter to be named later), those are pretty good odds. Congrats to all the others moving on. And if you didn't enter this year, keep it in mind for 2009: the number of entries in contests rarely decrease substantially year-to-year.

  • Congrats!

    Not sure if yours is still alive in the contest, but whether it is or not, you should be proud of yourself for getting to this point!
