The PTC script competition team are delighted with the progress, success and recognition that previous winners are receiving.
In addition to the generous prize money and publicity also comes a stream of success...
As a result of winning the first short script competition in 2009, A. D. Cooper and her winning script 'The View from the Window' is now in post production and receiving its final polish before being launched on the festival circuit. Alice has already received accolades for a previous script which was also made into a film called 'Feet'.
Today I learned that talented writer Lisa Barrass, who came second in the Feature film script competition 2011 has been long listed for her script 'Since You've Been Gone' in this year's BAFTA Rocliffe new writers forum.
Huge congratulations to both and I look forward to seeing many more names from the Prequel to Cannes winners gallery, go on to receive even more recognition of their unique writing talent.
The new 2012 Prequel to Cannes writing competition will be open at the end of November 2011... check out www.prequeltocannes.biz to see the excellent cash prizes on offer. New categories will also be available with exciting prizes.

Competition 2011/12 launches:
The shortlist for the 2010/11 feature film script have been narrowed down to just four contenders which has made the decision making for selecting the final two winning scripts challenging, to say the least. So we've taken an extra week to make sure the correct decision is reached. What is heartwarming is the quality of the script entries; they certainly prove the writers can write and tell a good yarn.
The positive feedback from entrants on the value of the script report proves beyond doubt, that writers are hungry for support to help them discover and learn where or how they can improve upon their script and take it to the next level.
In order to try and separate the scripts, therefore creating a little more distinction between them, we will now take into account the treatment, synopsis and script presentation (or format), in the hope that it will be easier to put a few shades of shadow line between them.
Nail biting and teeth gnashing will take place this week, but the total cash prize fund of £600 will hopefully make the extra wait worthwhile...
The announcements will now take place on Friday, 8th July 2011...
