A big congratulation goes out to the winners of the 2010 SellingYourScreenplay.com screenplay competition. Competition was fierce as we had hundreds of entries. Unfortunately everyone can’t be a winner. Please remember that writing is very subjective and just because one of our judges didn’t move your script to the next level doesn’t mean that it’s not “good,” it simply means it didn’t resonate with that particular judge.
Listed below are the winners of this year’s competition.
