ARE MANY OF THE QUESTIONS WE OFTEN RECEIVE. SHOULD YOU HAVE ANY OTHER
QUESTIONS - PLEASE CONTACT US.
many submissions does Kairos receive?
We received nearly 500 for the 2011 competition and we expect to maintain
around that number for this year. Given that the competition has a relatively
narrow focus - we were greatly encouraged to see this number grow to
such an extent in only 5 years of its existence. As far as your chances
of getting into the semi-final rounds... chances are fairly good as
roughly 1 in 9 of last year’s entrants were recognized with this
the competition international?
Yes. We have received submissions from more than a dozen countries.
Please be aware of the fact that all submission must be in English.
all genres considered?
Yes. While the vast majority of submissions have been family dramas,
comedies, epics and bio-pics - we have received some rather terrific
horror, western, action adventure, science fiction and animation.
does "circa" mean on the submission form?
The word means “around or about.” What we are asking is
“when” the story takes place - i.e. - present day, 1800’s,
you provide coverage to entrants?
Regrettfully no, we are unable to provide coverage to entrants. Our
readers and judges notes are confidential and are not structured in
a way that would provide viable assistance to the new or beginning writer
as they are written from the point of view of the competition and maintaining
its guidelines. There are many great outlets for script counselling
and feedback as well as wonderful secular and Christian writing programs
that fulfill this need.
length should the script be?
Scripts should be between 87 and 130 pages in length. We will accept
scripts up to 150 pages (not counting the title page) - however we charge
an additional $20 for scripts exceeding 130 pages.
