For screenwriters, March can also be a maddening month, as both first-timers and veteran writers prepare to submit their scripts to various screenwriting contests. The deadline for this year's Scriptapalooza competition is April 14, while the Austin Film Festival deadline is April 30 and the Script Pipeline deadline is May 1. All of these contests represent opportunities for aspiring screenwriters to “survive and advance” in their careers.
Before you can reach the “championship” level – whatever that means to you – you must go through the “Final Four” steps to prepare the script for submission.
