IMLC Quarterly Logline Contest


The Internet Movie Logline Creator (IMLC) gives writers a template and resources for building a short, pitchy logline, one of the toughest things we screenwriters ever have to write. The Quarterly Contest gives you a forum to test out your prose on your peers before taking it to producers.

1. What if my entry is over 140 characters?


I'll ask you to resubmit, and may suggest a change to get it down to 140.


2. When is the voting period?


From the day after the deadline (26th of month) till the first of the next month.


3. How is voting done?


By return email.


4. What if there is a tie?


I'll resend the tied entries to the list for a revote. If it's still tied, I'll break it myself.


5. Why should I bother entering?


Only enter if you want to improve your logline skills. That's what I build the website for in the first place.


6. Do you cover scripts or do consulting?


No, though I'm happy to toss a few emails back and forth, if you like.  I don't hold myself up as an expert, though, just another screenwriter.


7. What do you get out of it?


The pleasure of meeting new people and paying back a bit for all the free advice I received when I was trying to learn this craft. Shout out to Jack Stanley!
