We are delighted to be able to announce THE SANDBOX by Math Saliva (story by Math and Olivier Biercewicz) as the first winner of our Featured Script of the Month. This bonus prize has been created to reward and develop the most interesting script we receive in the previous month (in this case August 2016) and the result has no bearing on the result of other entries to any of our competitions. It was an interesting challenge to pick the most interesting script from such a wide variety of scripts written to a high-quality, but Math thoroughly deserves this. For winning the Script of the Month, Math receives free Judging Feedback worth $99 plus a free resubmission for a redrafted version of his script, THE SANDBOX, to our latest main Competition! On top of that, we will give Math and his script the kind of publicity that our previous Monthly Contest winners have received.
LEGACY, Marc W. Johnson.
PEEP, David Schutt.
SHINE YOUR EYES, Clint Pearson
