RICHMOND, Virginia — The Virginia Film Office is sponsoring the Virginia Screenwriting Competition.
The competition is intended to provide Virginia screenwriters with a forum for their work and an opportunity to present their scripts to professional members of the motion picture and television industry.
The competition does not require an entrance fee, and all entries receive a written evaluation from the first round judges. Past winners include Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, who won in 1989 for his screenplay "Home Fries", and Megan Holley, who won in 2003 for her screenplay "Sunshine Cleaning".
Only Virginia residents or students currently enrolled in Virginia schools may submit screenplays. Each script must contain either Virginia locations or locations that could reasonably be expected to be found in Virginia.
The submission deadline is May 25.
