Do you accept episodic, TV or
short film scripts?
No. We only accept feature length screenplays.
you accept muscials?
We do accept feature length screenplays that are musicals - however
we are unable to accept music CDs and the like as a compliment of the
script. In the end - the script must stand on its own.
scripts read in their entirety and what is the process?
All submissions are read in their entirety. We do not simply read the
first few pages to see if it “grabs” us. It is the obligation
of any competition to fully review its submissions. It is not their
prerogative. We have a large group of readers all over the world that
read for the Kairos Prize. All scripts are read a minimum of two times
before any decision is made as to whether or not they will go to the
next level. If a script moves forward it goes into our semi-final rounds
and to our list of industry judges.
you accept hard copies of the script?
No. Due to the fact that our readers are all over the world - it is
impossible for us to accept hard copies.
do you match the script with the submission form given that you request
that the script have no contact info on its title page?
We’ve never lost one yet. Simply put it is matched with the title
on the submission form and each submission is then given an internal
tracking number. It is important that no personal information is given
to our judges as our judges are “blind.” Decisions are based
on the merits of the submission....nothing more, nothing less.
there a limit to the number of entries I may submit?
may re-submit a script that I submitted a previous year?
Absolutely. If you have reworked your script and would like to submit
the same title again - you are more than welcome to do so.
