The Cynosure Screenwriting Awards seek to expand the scope of mainstream cinema by recognizing and rewarding screenplays in two distinct categories: screenplays which feature compelling female protagonists; and screenplays that showcase diversity (ethnicity, race, gender, sexuality, disability, etc.).
There will be one $5,000 Grand Prize Cash Award given to the best script from either category. The Grand Prize Winner will receive a Cynosure Mentorship - a meeting with an established Hollywood Producer, Agent or Manager. Additionally, the winner will receive an Executive Badge Plus Six Day Conference to the American Film Market (AFM). The Grand Prize winner will receive an InkTip Script Listing so they can promote themselves and their scripts to InkTip's entire network of producers, managers and agents. They will also have their logline featured in InkTip Magazine which is sent to nearly 15000 producers and reps. The winner will also receive the following services from SellAScript.com: Total Script Express -which sends a query to over 8000 professionals; a One Year free listing in the Script Marketplace and Six month access to the Writer's Rolodex.
The First Runner-Up from each category will receive a cash prize of $500, one InkTip Script Listing so they can get their scripts to producers and the SellAScript.com prize package.
The Second Runner Up from each category will receive a cash prize of $250, one InkTip Script Listing so they can get their scripts to producers and the SellAScript.com prize package.
