With $20 entry fee why wouldn't they? Mind you it's about £13 in the current exchange rate.

Certainly! Please do check us out. We'll be running more throughout the rest of the year and onwards.

We operate a very low-cost entry fee. The submission fees go directly into competition prize monies and employing readers. We have a panel of 20 industry professionals on-board, with feedback being provided on each screenplay - even if they don't win.

Thanks, Katy -will keep an eye out!

That would be about £7.50 with the 50% off discount I guess? Let's not look a gift horse in the currency conversion app.

It's generally a tricky one with entry fees but definitely appreciate when organisations are transparent about what those fees are funding. Especially if they're giving something back like feedback! I found out on Monday evening I got to the full read stage in the recent BBC comedy room window; heartened to get that far but no idea what the readers made of it/no idea how to improve it. (And yes, this is a humblebrag.)

Due to the overwhelming support and success, we've decided to extend this offer for another week. As such, a new code has been issued, which'll allow you to save 50% off entries. Just enter FD50off at the checkout.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted their screenplays so far. We're looking forward to checking them all out.
