Nicholl Fellowship

Out of a record setting 7,251 scripts, the 2013 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting have been awarded to just five winners. Out of the four individual writers and one writing team, each will receive a $35,000 prize. The first installment will be distributed at an awards presentation on Thursday, November 7, where there will be a reading of selected scenes from the fellows’ winning scripts. 

Though the Academy acquires no rights to the Nicholl fellows works and does not involve itself commercially in any way with their completed script, the Fellowships are awarded with the understanding that the recipients will each complete a feature-length screenplay during their fellowship year.

This year's winners are:

     Frank DeJohn & David Alton Hedges, Santa Ynez, CA, "Legion"

     Patty Jones, Vancouver, BC, Canada, "Joe Banks"

     Alan Roth, Suffern, NY, "Jersey City Story"

     Stephanie Shannon, Los Angeles, CA, "Queen of Hearts"

     Barbara Stepansky, Burbank, CA, "Sugar in My Veins"
