Horror Fans! Screenplay Contest Waives Submission Fees in Light of Pandemic
Are you a horror fan? Do you love horror? The macabre? The gruesome? Have you got a flair for screenwriting? Have you ever imagined a screenplay you have written being given life and appearing on the silver screen?
In the coming year, they will be looking for the best screenplay based upon a short story of the screenwriter's choice of stories of horror author Thomas M. Malafarina. This story will be prepped and readied for filming.
The Challenge: Finding a single short story of Thomas Malafarina's short stories which will be rewritten as a screenplay and prepared for film production.
Reward: The Best screenplay received will be awarded a starting cash award of $500 minimum and assistance in launching the filming based upon the winner's chosen story.
This competition is opened to all screenwriters 18 years of age and older.
In light of the growing unemployment numbers, recognizing that among these numbers are screenwriters, and in larger numbers, horror fans who are looking for an opportunity to express themselves creatively and receive recognition for the screenplays they may write, we at the Thomas M. Malafarina Horror Screenplay Contest have decided to waive our submission fees to our screenplay contest.
All a screenwriter needs do is include the words Waiver Request (name of the blog), and we will make that happen.
