Academy's 2014 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting Competition Now Underway

The 2014 Academy Nicholl Fellowships in Screenwriting competition
is now underway.  In November, as many as
five $35,000 fellowships will be awarded.

The annual Fellowships competition is open to any individual
who has not earned a total of more than $25,000 from the sale or option of
screenplays or teleplays, or received fellowships or prizes of more than

quid pro quo involving the writer’s work.

7,251 entries.

To enter, writers must submit a completed application
online, upload one PDF copy of their original screenplay in English and pay the
entry fee before the regular deadline at 5:00 p.m. PT on April 10, 2014.
