SCRIPT Magazine Launches The Ultimate Writer's Workspace Giveaway

The screenwriter’s foremost source for news and information offers readers over $8,500 in prizes.

In its May/June 2009 issue, Script magazine, the premier magazine for screenwriters, announced its Ultimate Writer’s Workspace Giveaway. The contest is designed to outfit one up-and-coming screenwriter with everything required to create a box-office hit-making haven.

Entrants, who are at least 18 years of age and live in the continental U.S., must write a short scene -- three pages max, in any genre, with at least two and not more than eight characters -- that explains why they deserve the Ultimate Writer’s Workspace. Submissions will be accepted until midnight EST of May 31, 2009 and judged on overall creativity, along with adherence to technical requirements such as proper formatting.

Script surveyed pro and aspiring writers to amass over $8,500 in essential items. Prizes include the recently released Final Draft version 8, a robotic massage chair from Human Touch, a gorgeous leather messenger bag from Saddleback Leather company, Keurig’s Platinum Single-Cup coffee brewing system, a Writers Store gift pack, workshops with Robert McKee and the Gotham Writers’ Workshop, a Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner, a collection of more than 20 books, 15 years of Script magazine back issues, and much, much more. One talented writer will be awarded the entire package in one of the most complete and functional giveaways available to aspiring screenwriters.

For 15 years, Script magazine has been the premier magazine for screenwriters, covering both the craft and business of screenwriting. Many of our articles are written by working screenwriters with films currently in theaters. Interviews with screenwriters, agents, managers, entertainment attorneys and filmmakers bring readers the complete story on writing for film. Read by agents, professional writers, aspiring writers, and industry professionals, Script’s mission is to celebrate the writer. Script magazine and its assets, including the Scriptwriters Showcase, ScriptXpert and Take A Meeting, are a part of Final Draft, Inc., producers of Final Draft software.

That sounds like the greatest prize ever. I'll be they receive a landslide amount of entries!

Considering how many less pages you have to capture audience attention (rather than a novel) I can only imagine 15 pages will seriously challenge skills for writing tight.

Wishing the best to the lucky winner!
