Cynosure Screenwriting Competition

21 February 2010
Cynosure Screenwriting Competition
The Cynosure Screenwriting Awards seek to expand the scope of mainstream cinema by recognizing and rewarding feature-length scripts in two distinct categories: screenplays which feature compelling female protagonists; and screenplays that showcase diversity (ethnicity, race, sexuality, disability, etc.).

As the definition of cynosure indicates, we are looking for scripts to serve as a guide to an industry often lacking in diverse stories. Two (2) $3000 cash prizes will be awarded, one to the best screenplay showcasing a strong female protagonist and one to the best screenplay which promotes, represents or reflects diversity. Additional prizes will be added, so be sure to visit the "Prizes" section on the Contest page often.

Past judges for the Cynosure Screenwriting Awards include established actors, managers and industry professionals from Fox Searchlight, Showtime, The Jacobson Company, Paradigm Literary and Talent Agency, Icon Productions, Crescendo Productions, New Regency Entertainment, The Steve Tisch Co., Oxygen, Mandate Pictures, Jersey Films, and DiNovi Pictures, to name just a few.

Cynosure scripts have been solicited by various studios and production companies, including Fox, ABC Television, Viacom, Licht/Mueller Film Corporation, Arpil Entertainment, Mohawk Productions, Flying Freehold Productions, Edmonds Entertainment, Klasky Csupo, Inc., Berg/Saccani Entertainment. In addition, scripts have been requested by agents and managers from Paradigm Literary and Talent Agency, the Radmin Company, Smith Entertainment, KPE Entertainment, Accurate Representation and Energy Entertainment, among others.
