Los Angeles, CA, March 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The Gimme Credit International Screenplay Competition (http://www.gimmecreditcompetition.com) was created to provide exposure and development advice to as many writers as possible. Their mission is to bring new and unique voices to the table. Recognizing a lack of distinct voices in the screenplays being produced, GSISC devoted their competition to finding brilliant feature scripts and developing them with the winners to ensure they are production ready.
Features: Gimme Credit has a network of associates at production companies who are constantly on the lookout for the next great script and they hope to bring it to them. Unlike many other competitions, GCISC works with their feature winners for months to get their scripts polished and edited and their selling materials in order to greatly increase their chances of success. While they don’t make the promise of production or sales for their feature winners, they do promise to submit the scripts to their qualified entertainment industry contacts and provide professional, honest development advice.
Screenplays are judged in the following eight genre categories: Comedy, Drama, Action, Family, Musicals, Horror & Thriller, Science Fiction & Fantasy and Other Genres.
Each category will have finalists (provided quality scripts are submitted in each genre). Then, four winners will be chosen from all of the finalists and will be submitted to production companies, agents and managers for consideration.
Shorts: Short and Super Short (a category originated at Gimme Credit) winners receive a lifetime membership in their exclusive ScriptMatch network, where they match screenplays to qualified filmmakers looking for production-ready short scripts. They ensure the production company seeking the script has the talent and funds to be able to produce a professional, polished film (no no-budget video shoots for YouTube) because they firmly believe that brilliant scripts deserve brilliant filmmakers.

All writers receive feedback on their scripts following the announcement of the winners. Gimme Credit’s unwavering commitment to helping writers succeed was the foundation for their complimentary feedback policy. The notes provide direction and guidance to entrants and also serve as proof that their script has been read. Should writers wish for more in-depth coverage of their scripts, they may purchase it at a discount from the Gimme Credit Coverage Service with their entry to the competition.
The top four winning feature screenplays are circulated to established production companies, agents and managers for consideration.
The top winners in each category, Super Shorts, Shorts and Features, also receive one 10-Day Class from ScreenwritingU.com and Final Draft. All winners receive a plethora of prizes from Gimme Credit’s generous sponsors targeted to help writers advance their craft and their careers.
