WriteMovies.com International Writing Competition #20

Results: The 20th WriteMovies.com International Writing Competition:

We received 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 n

umber 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 decided against many competent works for a variety of reasons. Some were not suited for the cinematic medium. Others were conceptually flawed, in that they either delivered last year’s movie or an idea that was just not feasible. There is nothing sadder than a brilliantly executed “bad idea”, (well, unless it’s a badly executed good idea). But in all honesty, the shelves of most Hollywood pros are lined with these. We hope that those who did not make 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-Click here


Résultats De Concours No: 22

WriteMovies.com, concours international pour la promotion des auteurs á Hollywood.

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, le Mexique, le Japon, l’Afrique du Sud et le Gabon.

La standard était très élevé, par conséquent le grand nombre d’auteurs que nous avons admis á la ronde finale. Si vous ne trouvez pas votre nom sur cette liste, ça 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.

Nous avons décidé contre beaucoup d’oeuvres compétents pour une variété de raisons. Certains ne convenaient pas á une interpretation cinématographique. D’autres étaient conceptuellement inappropriées,où nous fournissaient une idée pour un film de l’année dernière.

Il n’y a rien de plus triste qu’une ” mauvaise idée ” brillamment exécutée, (á moins que ce soit une bonne idée mal exécutée). Mais dans toute honnêteté, les étagères de la plupart des scénaristes de Hollywood sont garnies de ces derniers.

Nous espérons que ceux qui ont été éliminés, resteront dans le contact avec nous. Nous avons apprécié notre myriade d’échanges d’email et travaillons dur á rendre ce site plus approprié á vos carrières.

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

Cordialement,
Le Team WriteMovies.com.
