You’ve waited an extra month now, and in that time we have been busy narrowing our field of competitors down from the initial flock of 57, down to these fine crop of 25 scripts and scribes.
From these 25 we shall reveal our top 13 finalists (at the end of April). From there the following month leads up to the Yorkton Film Festival (#YFF11), May 28th, 2011 where we will announce the top 3 winners and present the 2010/11 Writers Block Crystal, iPad and cash to our grand prize winner.
We should also mention that the top 13 scripts’ scribes will be invited and accredited to attend #YFF11 and participate in the films, forums and of course, the famous lobster blast!
A huge congratulations to all those that made the cut and fingers crossed for those still in the running. There has been a noticeable increase in the quality of submissions this year, which has made the judges selection process that much more difficult to narrow down our finalists this year.
