KITFR Online Screenwriting Competition Finalists 2010

Way back in October, I started the Kid In The Front Row Online Screenwriting Competition.

The rules were:
  • Your script must be no longer than FIVE pages (six including a cover page)
  • You must write in industry-standard format.
  • The DEADLINE for the competition is THURSDAY 21st OCTOBER 2010. No exceptions.
Those are the technical rules, here are the STORY RULES.
  • You must have these THREE characters: Margaret, Abdul and Regina.These are the ONLY characters you can have.
  • Your story takes place at the Headquarters of: 'The Equal Rights Committee.' The only locations (within the headquarters) are: Meeting Room, Kitchen, Secret Shelter.
  • You must include this line of dialogue somewhere in the script: "Who the hell is Mark Flamstein?"

There were 25 entries --- and it was amazing how great the screenplays were; given the restraints in terms of deadline, characters and locations, and of course; the page count limitation.

Care to share?


  1. I am really bummed that I missed out on this!

  2. I'm in the same boat as TB. Will there be another one?

  3. Another boat? Maybe. But I wouldn't want to let anything leak.

  4. What an exciting idea/project. Best of luck to all of the finalists.
