WriteMovies.com International Writing Competition #28


We received nearly 1000 screenplays, books, plays, short stories and articles from the following countries: USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Belgium, India, Switzerland, Austria, Russia, Italy, Greece, Nigeria, Georgia, Mexico, Japan, South Africa and The Cameroon.

The overall standard was very high, hence the large number of writers we found to be eligible for the final rounds.

If you do not find your name on this list, it does not mean that you are a "bad" writer. We sincerely believe that anyone who sacrifices, nights, weekends and often a lot more, to the dream of becoming a writer, is deserving of respect.

We hope that those who did not make it will stay in touch with us. We have enjoyed our myriad of email exchanges and are working hard at making this site more relevant to your careers. Don't forget that many of our writers got their careers going by using our consulting service: http://www.writemovies.com/consulting_text.htm

With thanks and best wishes to you all,

The WriteMovies.com team.


 

Résultats du Concours International No: 28

Nous avons reçu 1000 scénarios, livres, pièces de théâtre, nouvelles, et articles des pays suivants: Les Etats-Unis, le Canada, le Royaume-Uni, l'Irlande, l'Australie, la Nouvelle Zélande, l'Allemagne, la France, la Belgique, l'Inde, la Suisse, l'Autriche, la Russie, l'Italie, la Géorgie, le Mexique, le Japon, l'Afrique du Sud et le Cameroun.

La niveau était très élevé, ainsi que le nombre d'auteurs admis pour les demi-finales et finales. Si vous ne trouvez pas votre nom sur cette liste, cela ne signifie pas que vous êtes un auteur " sans talents ". Nous croyons sincèrement que tous ceux qui sacrifient, les nuits, week-ends et souvent beaucoup plus, au rêve de devenir un auteur, mérite du respect.

Les raisons pour rejeter une oeuvre sont variés et n'ont pas toujours rapport avec la qualité intrinsèque de l'oeuvre en question. Certaines peuvent ne pas convenir à une interpretation cinématographique. D'autres étaient conceptuellement inappropriées, ou utilisaient des idées pas en vogue ou au contraire trop communes.

Nous espérons que ceux qui ont été éliminés resteront cependant en contact avec nous.

Avec tous nos remerciements et nos meilleurs voeux à vous tous.

WriteMovies.com: Der internationale Schriftstellerwettbewerb: 28

Wir empfingen 1000 Drehbücher, Bücher, Theaterstücke, Kurzgeschichten und Artikel von den folgenden Ländern: USA, Kanada, Großbritannien, Irland, Australien, Neuseeland, Deutschland, Frankreich, Belgien, Indien, von der Schweiz, Österreich, Rußland, Italien, Georgien, Mexiko, Japan, Südafrika und dem Cameroon.

Der gesamte Standard war sehr hoch, darum die grosse Anzahl von Autoren, die für die abschließende Runde ausgewählt wurden.

Wenn Sie nicht Ihren Namen auf dieser Liste finden, bedeutet es nicht, daß Sie ein " unbegabter " Schriftsteller sind. Wir glauben aufrichtig, daß jeder, der Nächte, Wochenende und häufig viel mehr, für den Traum Schrifsteller zu werden aufopferte, Respekt verdient hat.

Aus dieversen Gründen entschieden wir uns gegen viele gute Arbeiten. Einige waren nicht für die Filmproduktion geeignet, andere behandelten ungeeignete Themen oder solche die bereits im vergangenen Jahr gedreht wurden.

Wir hoffen, daß diejenigen, die dieses Mal ausscheiden mit uns in Kontakt bleiben. Wir haben unsere vielen Emailaustausche genossen und arbeiten hart daran diese Site nützlicher für Ihre Karriere zu gestalten.

Mit Dank und freundlichen Grüssen,

Das WriteMovies.com Team.

Hi Alex - I've finished my edits based on the last round of coverage. I think that maxes me out at 4! I wanted to thank you so much for your help and understanding along the way. Lots of times through contests or festivals you can tell that the people in charge are completely out of touch with the experience of the writer and frankly don't care. But you and your team have been amazing and I have a better script because of it. Thank you!!
-Natalie H.-

Your contest, the Write Movies International Writing Competition, embodies the first major opportunity for success as screenwriters and filmmakers these two have. To even make it as finalists testifies to what they can achieve. All invested in adev.ious.plot look forward to seeing the final results of this contest and will continue to fight for every scrap of success they can.
-Michael M. & Tyson N.-
I just wanted to say thank you for a great lunch today. It was really enlightening to sit down with people with so much experience in the business and talk about how things get done in Hollywood. I especially loved everyone's input on how to pitch a story. It was like a crash course in the way Hollywood works all over one lunch.
-Wayne-
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! Thanks to everybody at WriteMovies for running such great contests. Thrilled to take 3rd place!
See you at the movies,
-Ron-

Just a quick thank you for the honest and thorough evaluation I've received for "Arnies Beef Palace." Incidentally, the more that I thought about it... the happier I was with the results. I felt that the value received from the comments was easily worth the $100. I felt that the story was accurately picked apart, the flaws of the scripts brought to light... I remain quite pleased.
-Craig P.-
The coverage is superb! The analyst, identified as Eok, pinpointed every weakness and offered some excellent suggestions for improvement. I am grateful for this reader's talents and percipience. What a gift!
