I’m friends with the folks at Shore Scripts; It’s the reason you’ve seen posts from time-to-time promoting their contest. They were originally out of the U.K., which, in terms of the contests that regularly get promoted (Nicholl Fellowship, AFF, etc), is a rarity. Now they have offices in Los Angeles. That alone doesn’t make them better or worse than the rest. Like anybody else, take a look at who’s behind them and the success stories. For what it’s worth, they come with my recommendation. Here are this year’s contest deadlines and prices:
1st March to 31st May 2017 – $43 (£35)
1st June to 31st July 2017 – $49 (£40)
1st August to 31st August 2017 – $55 (£45)
1st March – 31st May 2017 – $43 (£35)
1st June – 31st July 2017 – $49 (£40)
1st August – 31st August 2017 – $55 (£45)
1st March – 31st May 2017 – $37 (£30)
1st June – 31st July 2017 – $43 (£35)
