I try to keep the Deadline section of my own blog up-to-date to help those looking for current contest information a place to find it, but someone else has already done that for me for the new year.
Stephanie Palmer of Good in a Room has released a list of the 10 noteworthy screenwriting competitions in one place, here.
If you’ve been thinking that this is the year to enter a contest, these are the ones that have cache. Write them down on your calendar, post them next to your computer for encouragement, and make this the year that you follow your dreams! Also, take note that some of the deadlines are already fast approaching, so don’t delay if you want to be a part of them.
And if you’re not already following Good in a Room, put yourself on her list. You’ll receive helpful tips and advice via email, and that’s invaluable for us novices. Wishing you all the best of luck!
